February fundraising numbers for the Democratic and Republican campaign committees are due to be filed with the Federal Election Commission on Friday.

The National Republican Congressional Committee announced it raised just more than $2 million while spending $1.3 million last month. That left the committee with $1.85 million in cash on hand and still carrying a debt of $6.4 million from last cycle. At the end of January, the NRCC reported that it was carrying $6.5 million in debt.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee will report raising $3.5 million and spending $2.3 million in February. As of March 1, the DCCC had $2.9 million in cash on hand but was carrying $15 million in debt. That’s $1 million less debt than the committee reported at the end of January.

Both the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and the National Republican Senatorial Committee raised $2.87 million each last month. The NRSC spent $2.84 million during February and ended the month with just more than $1 million in the bank. The Republican committee reported $2.7 million in debt, down from the $4 million that it showed at the end of January.

The DSCC spent just more than $1 million and had nearly $3.7 million in cash on hand at the beginning of March. The DSCC was also carrying $10.86 million in debt, about the same as the $10.9 million that it showed at the end of January.
