DCCC Outraised NRCC in August
Updated 7:54 p.m.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee outraised its GOP counterpart, the National Republican Campaign Committee, by a wide margin in the month of August.
The DCCC on Thursday reported raising $11.64 million last month, while the NRCC brought in $6.8 million during the same time period. But Republicans maintained their cash advantage entering September. The NRCC had $49.8 million in the bank compared to $40 million cash on hand for the DCCC as both committees begin to empty their bank accounts on independent expenditures for the election.
For the cycle, the Democratic committee has outraised the GOP by more than $10 million. The DCCC has brought in $127.1 million, while the NRCC has raised $115.9 million.
