DSCC Maintains 2-1 Cash Advantage Over NRSC

Posted June 20, 2008 at 10:45am

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee raised just over $1 million more than its Republican counterpart in May, helping the Democrats to continue their almost 2-1 cash on hand advantage over the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

The DSCC raised $5.92 million last month, while the NRSC raised $4.89 million, according to the committees.

The Democrats, however, also spent almost twice as much as the Republicans last month: The DSCC spent $4.95 million, while the NRSC spent only $2.70 million in May.

The DSCC ended the month with $38.53 million in cash on hand, while the NRSC had $21.56 million in the bank.

The Republicans’ fundraising numbers do not include this week’s President’s Dinner, which raised more than $13.5 million for the NRSC.
