House Democrats’ campaign arm outpaced its Republican counterpart in its October fundraising haul, according to figures released on Friday.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) posted it raised $5.4 million in October, compared to the National Republican Congressional Committee’s (NRCC) $5.1 million, according to an NRCC aide.
So far this cycle, the DCCC has raised about $56.9 million, surpassing the NRCC’s total of $50.9 million.
The DCCC also has a slight cash advantage, with $24.4 million cash on hand compared to the NRCC’s $22.9 million cash on hand. Both the DCCC and NRCC are debt-free.
House Democrats are in an uphill battle to regain the majority in the lower chamber. While Democrats historically perform better in presidential years, they’ll need to net 30 House seats to secure a majority.
