Senate Democrats Beat GOP in June Fundraising
Posted at 1:21 p.m. on July 19, 2013
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee raised $1.5 million more than its GOP counterpart in June, bringing in a total of $3 million more during the second quarter, according to figures released by the parties on Friday.
The DSCC raked in some $5.3 million last month, but the committee did not release its cash-on-hand or debt figures. As of May 31, the DSCC had $9.6 million in the bank and was carrying $12.5 million in debt, according to its June report to the Federal Election Commission.
The committees’ June fundraising reports were not yet available online.
The National Republican Senatorial Committee said it raised $3.7 million last month. As of June 30, the committee had $7 million in the bank and was carrying $6.5 million in debt.
In May, the NRSC raised almost the exactly the same amount as in June and ended that month with a nearly identical cash-on-hand figure. But it paid down $1.5 million in debt.
