DCCC Raised More Than NRCC in January

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee raised more than the National Republican Congressional Committee by almost $2 million in January.

The DCCC raised $6.1 million to the NRCC's $4.4 million in the first month of 2013.

The House Democrats' campaign arm ended the month with $4.6 million in cash on hand but had $12.6 million in debt at the end of last month.

The NRCC had $2.8 million in the bank but posted less debt — $11 million — at the same time.

A DCCC aide said it was the best January fundraising in the committee's history.

In 2014, House Democrats must net 17 seats to win control of their chamber.
