The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee ended the midterm election cycle $12 million in debt, $3.2 million more than its Republican counterpart.
The committees released the figures ahead of filing their post-general election reports, which are due Thursday to the Federal Election Commission.
The DCCC’s debt is $2.3 million less than it took out in the 2012 cycle, when it picked up more than a half-dozen seats. But it’s more than the $8.8 million debt the National Republican Congressional Committee announced earlier in the day.
This cycle, House Democrats may lose as many as 13 seats, depending on the outcome of a recount in Arizona.
