DCCC Outraises NRCC in First Quarter

April 14, 2011 7:41 a.m.

House Democrats may be back in the minority, but apparently they haven’t lost their fundraising touch. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee announced today that they had raised $19.6 million for the quarter, outpacing their GOP counterparts who raised $18 million.

The National Republican Congressional Committee still has more cash on hand, however, at $9 million to the Democrats’ $4.6 million. They each hold about $8 million in debt.

The NRCC touted their March fundraising numbers as their best ever, while the DCCC sought to portray their strong quarter as a sign the House might again be in play in 2012. A recent polling analysis by Democratic firm Public Policy Polling suggested that Democrats were in a position to potentially threaten the Republican majority given the GOP’s dwindling approval ratings.
