House Democrats say they raised $61M last year, claiming good showing despite minority
WASHINGTON (AP) ' The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee says it raised $61.4 million last year, claiming a good showing for a party in the minority.
The committee is the political arm of House Democrats. The fundraising blitz gives it $11.6 million in cash on hand to help Democrats win House seats in November.
The group's GOP counterpart is the National Republican Congressional Committee. It would have to raise about $9.6 million to match that figure. Those fundraising numbers are not yet available.
A full report for the House Democrats' committee will be filed with the Federal Election Commission by Jan. 31.
