More good news for House Democrats: they’re winning the money race heading into the 2012 cycle.
Last month, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee just about doubled the haul of their counterparts, the National Republican Congressional Committee. The DCCC pulled in $6.64 million, while the NRCC brought in just $3.8 million. While the NRCC has more cash on hand (around $12.2 million to the DCCC’s around $9.5 million) and slightly less debt, over the course of the year the DCCC is outraising the team with the big House majority.
The year-long totals show the DCCC raising nearly $48 million to the NRCC’s just over $44 million.
This comes on the heels of polling showing the public is growing more interested in returning the House to Democratic hands next year:
Overcoming the GOP’s big majority is a tall order come election season. But for now, Democrats are proving they can win the race for cash.
