DSCC Overpowers NRSC In First-Quarter Fundraising

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) is off to a strong start in 2013, hauling in $13.7 million for the first quarter and overtaking its Republican counterpart by nearly double, according to the Hill.

The DSCC picked up $5.2 million last month while the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) brought in $3.2 million. Republicans raised $6.9 million for the quarter. The two stand on opposite ends in debt, however, with the NRSC $9.5 million in the red and the DSCC owing $15 million as of February, the last time they disclosed that measure.

Twenty one Democratic senators face re-election in 2014, while just 14 Republican senators are also in cycle, most of whom hold relatively safe seats.
