The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee slightly outraised its Republican counterpart in April, bringing in $4.5 million.
It was the fourth straight month the DSCC bested the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which raised $4.25 million in April. The DSCC ended the month with $25.7 million on hand, compared with $21.6 million for the NRSC.
The DSCC is defending 23 seats — and a four-seat majority — compared with just 10 for Republicans. Roll Call rates eight races as Tossups and six as either Leans Democratic or Leans Republican.
