DCCC Outraises NRCC in January

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee outraised its Republican counterpart in January by $700,000, according to figures provided Thursday by both committees. The DCCC brought in $6.8 million last month, bringing the committee's cash on hand to $32 million as of Jan. 31. The National Republican Congressional Committee raised $6.1 million in January. It ended January with $24 million in the bank. Neither committee has any remaining debt. With a 17-seat deficit and limited opportunities, Democrats face an uphill challenge to retake the majority this cycle.
