NRCC: We’re $4 Million Ahead of DCCC in Cash on Hand


The National Republican Congressional Committee, whose mission is to preserve GOP control of the House, sends along word that they have enjoyed their best October fundraising in a non-election year ever, raising $4.56 million and leaving the committee with $13.8 million in cash on hand. Their year-to-date fundraising is 59 percent higher than it was in 2009 ($48.7 million vs. $30.6 million), and the NRCC’s net position is $11.1 million ahead of where the committee was at this time in 2009.

Of course, they’re in the majority; they should be well ahead of where they were in 2009!

For comparison, Roll Call reports that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee raised $4.18 million in October and had $9.81 million in cash on hand on Oct. 31.
