Democrats Hit Another Low Fundraising Month Nationally; House Group Performs Better
By Sally Persons - The Washington Times
The Republican National Committee continued a massive fundraising lead in July as its Democratic counterparts hit another low point.
The RNC raised $10.6 million in July, while the Democratic National Committee raised a mere $3.8 million, its lowest July total since 2007, according to the groups’ FEC filings. The DNC also added to its debt, which now totals $3.4 million. The RNC carries no debt.
Overall totals for the year show a huge financial gap between the two organizations. The RNC has raised a whopping $75 million in 2017 so far compared to the $42 million raised by the DNC.
But on the congressional fundraising level, the story is reversed.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee raised $6.2 million in July compared to the National Republican Congressional Committee’s $3.8 million in the same month. The DCCC has been breaking fundraising records for much of the year beating their past totals and the NRCC’s monthly totals as well.
