NRCC Outraised DCCC in January

House Republicans narrowly outraised their Democratic counterparts in January, taking in $3.79 million and pecking away at Democrats’ massive fundraising advantage 10 months out from the 2008 election.

The National Republican Congressional Committee ended January with $6.41 million in the bank and $2.3 million in debt. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee closed out the first month of 2008 with $35.5 million in the bank and $1.68 million in debt.

The DCCC took in $3.72 million during the month, about $63,000 less than the NRCC. More than half of the NRCC’s financial edge in January was transferred from other GOP party committees.

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee took in $3.95 million last month, compared with the National Republican Senatorial Committee’s $3.5 million haul. The DSCC had about $30.5 million in cash on hand at the end of the month and carried $1 million in debt.

The NRSC had $13.5 million in cash on hand at the end of January.
