Campaign Committees Report Final Numbers

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee “raised more money this cycle than in any other midterm election cycle, according to post-election numbers released by the party, but far less than in the 2008 cycle,” Roll Call reports.

The DSCC raised $127 million through Nov. 22, including $19.9 million from Oct. 14 to Nov. 22. The committee spent $33 million in that time span. It slightly outraised and outspent the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which raised $19.4 million during the same period and spent $30.8 million, according to figures released by the committee.

Meanwhile, the NRSC increased its fundraising from the 2008 cycle,  bringing in $112.3 million through Nov. 22. Republicans picked up seven Democratic seats — six on Election Day and the Massachusetts seat won by Sen. Scott Brown (R) in a January special election to fill the vacancy left by the late Sen. Edward Kennedy (D).
