Democrats are protecting what is effectively a four-seat margin in the chamber. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee also said last week that it had broken its own record, but its total — $36.5 million — for the quarter is about $9 million short of its Republican counterpart.
The NRCC said it had $55 million on hand, the highest ever at this point in the election cycle, compared with the DCCC’s $44 million. Both political organizations said they were not in debt.
“We will take back the majority next fall and voters are doing everything they can to help us accomplish that goal,” said Emmer. “Every vulnerable House Democrat should be eyeing the exits, because if they choose to run, they will lose.”
Last week, Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney of New York, the DCCC chairman, said its fundraising was “strong” and that “American voters are rejecting Republican extremism and know just how critical a Democratic House majority is to protecting our democracy and delivering for American families.”
