The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee outraised its Republican counterpart for a third straight month to start 2013, according to reports. Roll Call reported Thursday that the National Republican Congressional Committee raised $8.1 million in March, trailing the $10.2 million the DCCC gathered during the month, according to the Democratic committee.

For the first three months of 2013, the DCCC raised $22.6 million and the NRCC raised $17.5 million. The Democratic committee has $8.9 million in the bank to the NRCC's $8.1 million, and the DCCC is retiring its debt at a faster pace.

An NRCC official told Roll Call in March that the committee had raised $14.4 million at its annual fundraising dinner, but some of that total must have come in the form of future pledges.

The DCCC outraised the NRCC despite being in the minority in the 2012 election cycle, though the Democratic committee was hampered by more debt after the 2010 elections. This year, the DCCC is grabbing an early advantage across all financial categories. Democratic House members also got off to a generally strong start on fundraising in the first quarter of 2013.
