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).
The NRSC has some $519,000 left in the bank with $6 million in debt. The DSCC has about $713,000, and had $6.7 million in debt as of Nov. 22.
