Latest DCCC vs. NRCC fundraising

Despite being in the minority, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee trounced the NRCC in the second quarter of 2014, bringing in $25.3 million for the quarter – $10.9 million in June alone.


With $50.9 million in the bank, the DCCC has conserved nearly $18 million more cash than at this point in the 2012 cycle. As of June’s public reports, the DCCC had an $8.4 million cash advantage over the NRCC.”
