The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) announced on Thursday it brought in $25.8 million in the third quarter, bringing its 2021 fundraising haul to $105 million through September. 

The committee said it set a record for its September fundraising, with $12.2 million raised. 

The NRCC said it has a total of $65 million in cash on hand, which is three times the amount it had at this time during the last campaign cycle.

Democrats currently have a narrow eight-seat majority in the House. More than 780 Republican candidates have filed to run so far, according to McCarthy's campaign. 

But Democrats have also shown their fundraising strength. The Democratic National Committee and its affiliated joint fundraising group revealed last month that it raised $12.2 million in August, leaving them with almost $68 million in the bank. The NRCC's Democratic counterpart, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, has not released its third-quarter fundraising numbers yet.
