The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee narrowly outraised its Republican counterpart in the month of July, according to Federal Election Commission filings. The Democrats' House campaign arm brought in $4.02 million for the month, compared to the National Republican Congressional Committee's $3.88 million.
The NRCC still has more money in its campaign account, and less debt than the DCCC. To start August, the NRCC has $11.29 million to spend, while the DCCC has $8.07 million in the bank.
The DCCC has now paid off most of the $19.6 million debt it held at the beginning of the cycle, and is just $3.99 million in the red. The NRCC holds $2.75 million in debt.
