House Demo­cratic cam­paign group out­raised GOP

The Washington Times Daily - - NATION - — Sally Per­sons

House Democrats last month raised more cam­paign money than their Repub­li­can coun­ter­parts.

The Demo­cratic Con­gres­sional Cam­paign Com­mit­tee raised more than $9.3 mil­lion in May, with two-thirds of the funds com­ing from grass-roots ef­forts, re­ports Roll Call.

The DCCC’s tally topped the Na­tional Repub­li­can Con­gres­sional Com­mit­tee’s to­tal of $6.5 mil­lion last month, re­ports the Wash­ing­ton Ex­am­iner.

Democrats say they have con­tin­ued to see a boost in fundrais­ing this year, which they cred­ited to Pres­i­dent Trump’s poor job per­for­mance so far. They have raised more than dou­ble the last off-year elec­tion to­tal of $4.4 mil­lion in May 2015.

But Repub­li­cans nearly dou­bled their last off-year to­tal of $3.7 mil­lion as well.
