House Dem campaign arm beats GOP rival in campaign fundraising

House Democrats’ campaign arm revealed Monday that it closed 2017 with a strong fundraising showing, breaking its off-year annual fundraising record by raising $105.5 million in 2017 ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s (DCCC) fundraising haul comes after the group closed the year by raising about $9.5 million in December. The DCCC has almost $39 million in its bank account to spend on the 2018 midterms, according to information released by the party committee on Monday.  The nine-figure haul represents a $37 million fundraising increase from 2015.   ADVERTISEMENT“I’m proud that grassroots donations continue to fuel our record breaking fundraising,” Rep. Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.), chairman of the DCCC, said in a statement.  “Despite full Republican control of Washington, we have far outraised our competition, which has already allowed us to invest in campaigns across the largest battlefield in a decade.” The DCCC total eclipses that of its GOP rival, the National Republican Campaign Committee (NRCC). The NRCC raised $85 million in 2017, its own off-year record, according to figures reported on by The Washington Examiner. The NRCC’s annual sum represents an increase of almost $23 million from the group’s 2015 fundraising performance.  Despite the DCCC’s fundraising advantage over 2017, the NRCC closed the year with $43.6 million in its campaign account — a few million more than its Democratic counterparts.  Democrats have to gain a net 24 seats in the midterm elections to win back control of the House, with both sides fighting for control of the House majority.
