The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee raised at least $2 million more than its GOP counterpart in October.

The National Republican Congressional Committee will report it raised $4.6 million in October and had $18.2 million in cash on hand at the end of the month that included the 16-day government shutdown. Public polling showed House Republican received most of the blame for the event.

Earlier on Wednesday, the DCCC released its fundraising numbers. The committee raised $7 million and reported more than $25 million in cash on hand.

Neither of the House campaign committees carries significant debt.
