NRSC outraises DSCC for August

The National Republican Senatorial Committee outraised the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in August, pulling in $3 million to the DSCC's $2.5 million.

The DSCC has $9.2 million cash on hand and $1.9 million in debt, while the NRSC has $5.2 million cash on hand and no debt.

Overall, the DSCC has outraised the NRSC in the year, $29 million to $27 million.

Interestingly, the party out of power outraised the majority party in the House as well: The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee brought in $3.6 million last quarter to the National Republican Campaign Committee's $3 million.

Put together, this may indicate both parties struggled from the debt ceiling debate that ran through July in August -- and that donors were more willing to donate to the groups out of power than those in control during that period.
