Updated 4:01 p.m. | The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee raised $1.3 million more than its GOP counterpart in February, according to committee aides.
The DCCC will report raising $6.4 million in February, compared to the National Republican Congressional Committee’s $5.1 million haul. The Democratic committee will report $34.4 million cash on hand, while the House GOP’s political arm had $24.8 in the bank at the end of last month.
Both committees eliminated their debt earlier in the cycle.
Both committees boast big money-making events in March. President Barack Obama is in Miami on Thursday, fundraising for the House Democrats. The NRCC will host its annual fundraising dinner on March 26.
On the Senate side, the Democrats’ campaign arm raised more than the National Republican Senatorial Committee last month.
The reporting deadline is midnight Thursday.
