DSCC Outraises NRSC During 1st Quarter

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee outraised the National Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee during the first quarter of 2011, bringing in $11.69 million as the NRSC brought in $11.2 million.

The DSCC ended the period with more money in the bank, but also more debt. They finished the first quarter with $5.5 million cash on hand, while the NRSC had $1.48 million in the bank. The DSCC's debt load stands at $4.89 million while the NRSC's debt stands at $2.75 million, the lowest of any of the six campaign committees. In March, the DSCC raised 5.6 million while the NRSC brought in $5 million.

Both committees expressed optimism, as the DSCC highlighted the fact that unlike the NRSC, they have significantly more cash on hand than debt. The NRSC, meanwhile, noted that March was the most successful off-year fundraising month for the committee since passage of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act.
