GOP Outduels Dems in October House Fundraising

More

The National Republican Congressional Committee has thus far outraised its Democratic counterpart, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, in the month of October, Jeremy Jacobs reports at Hotline OnCall:

In their pre-general election FEC filings late Thursday, the NRCC reported having raised $5.2 million from October 1 to 13. The Democratic Congressional Committee raised more than $4.9 million.

The NRCC's report comes as many Republican challengers also posted a strong two weeks of fundraising -- a sign that the momentum is squarely in the GOP's direction.

The DCCC, meanwhile, still has far more cash in the bank--$24.7 million to the NRCC's $1.2 million--and has spent more than the NRCC this election cycle. The DCCC has spent a total of $65.3 million, while the NRCC has spent $62.4 million.
