The Democratic National Committee raised nearly half of its Republican counterpart’s October fundraising haul, according to Federal Election Commission filings.

The DNC raised about $4.5 million last month compared to the Republican National Committee’s $8.7 million haul that it posted last week.

The national Democratic campaign arm burned through more than it raised in October, spending nearly $5.3 million.

The RNC has a significant cash advantage, posting $20 million cash on hand compared to the DNC’s $4.7 million cash on hand.

“We’re hard at work building a data and field infrastructure that will defeat Hillary Clinton, and thousands of enthusiastic voters from across the country have been excited to chip in for that effort,” RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said last week in a statement.

The DNC also lags behind its GOP counterpart in total contributions raised this year. So far this cycle, the DNC has raised about $51.2 million, trailing behind the RNC’s $89 million fundraising haul.

The DNC has a debt of $6.9 million compared to the RNC’s debt of $1.8 million.
