The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee outraised its Republican counterpart in September, according to figures released today.

The DCCC, looking to pick up 25 seats next year to win back a House majority, raised $6.6 million, well ahead of the National Republican Congressional Committee’s $3.8 million haul. But the NRCC has more cash on hand and less debt.

At the end of September, the NRCC had $12.2 million on hand and $1.5 million in debt after paying off $1 million last month. The DCCC had $9.5 million on hand and $2 million in debt.

The DCCC raised $14.2 million in the third quarter and has brought in $47.9 million this year. The NRCC raised $10.7 million last quarter and $44.2 million on the year.
