A DCCC official additionally revealed that the organization has now raised $13.5 million for the year, the news publication reported.

Politico on Thursday also said that a committee aide noted that 1.7 million of its donations are from individuals contributing $200 or less.

DCCC Chairman Ben Ray Luján, meanwhile, predicted Trump’s name on ballots could cost Republicans multiple House seats in November.

“Now the Republican primary has taken shape, Trump will inflict more harm on down-ballot Republicans,” he said. "This is bad news for the GOP. As Trump continues to drive the narrative in offensive and unpredictable ways, Congressional Republicans will be unable to escape its impact."
