There’s good news today for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which oversees the 435 races in the House of Representatives. The committee out-raised its Republican counterpart, the National Republican Congressional Committee, for the month of March.
The DCCC raised $9.8 million in March, about $500,000 more than the NRCC’s $9.3 million.
Despite losing the majority in the House of Representatives after the 2010 midterm elections, the DCCC has been out-raising its Republican opponents with some regularity, beating the NRCC for five months in a row. Most political spectators credit the committee’s strong fundraising to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s proven talent for raising money.
But the NRCC has more cash on hand. It has about $27.1 million, while the DCCC is about $4 million behind, with $22.8 million.
Both committees reported having no debts.
