DSCC Outraises NRSC Again in March

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee outraised its counterpart, the National Republican Senatorial Committee, for the the third consecutive month, bringing in more than $5.2 million in March, according to figures provided by the committee. The NRSC raised almost $3.2 million for the month.

With the $2-million advantage, the DSCC padded what was already a sizable fundraising lead. The committee finished March with $8.4 million cash on-hand, while the Republicans had nearly $5.3 million in the bank. For the year, the DSCC has outraised the NRSC, $13.7 million to $6.9 million.

"We have a long way to go, but we are off to a very strong start," said DSCC executive director Guy Cecil. "The cash advantage for Democratic candidates enabled us to hold our own against Republican third party spending in 2012."

The NRSC's fundraising haul represents an improvement since February, when the committee raised $2.2 million. Last month, the NRSC blamed its slow start on staff turnover.
