DSCC Outraised NRSC in November

The National Republican Senatorial Committee boosted its war chest in November but was again outraised by its Democratic counterpart, according to figures released this week.
The NRSC announced Friday that it raised $3.2 million in November and increased its cash on hand to $6.4 million. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee — with help from its best fundraising asset, President Barack Obama — previously announced bringing in $5.1 million and ending the month with $12 million on hand.
That brings the DSCC’s fundraising edge over the first 11 months of the year to $16 million. The DSCC is still $5 million in debt, while the NRSC has no remaining debt from last cycle.
Republicans must net six seats to win back the majority in the 2014 midterms, when most of the competitive seats are held by Democrats.
