House Democrats outraising Republicans in 2013April 19, 2013 @ 10:41 am
WASHINGTON (AP) - The campaign arm of House Democrats outraised its Republican rival in first quarter of 2013, taking in more than $22 million.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has raised $22.6 million so far in 2013, compared to $17.5 million for the National Republican Congressional Committee. House Democrats also have more cash on hand, $10.2 million compared to $8.1 million, and less debt. The NRCC reports about $8.3 million in debt compared to $4.5 million in debt reported by the DCCC.
After picking up eight seats in 2012, Democrats would need to net 17 seats from Republicans in 2014 to reclaim control of the House.
