Senate Democrats Raise Twice as Much as GOP in June

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee raised almost double what its Republican counterpart did in June, thanks in part to a dinner headlined by President Barack Obama. In fact, both parties held major fundraising events last month, but the money totals released today did not appear to reflect a big haul from the Republicans’ joint fundraising dinner in June. Democrats also benefited last month from a Chicago event headlined by White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel.The DSCC raised $6.2 million last month compared with the National Republican Senatorial Committee’s $3.4 million haul, according to monthly fundraising reports due to be filed with the Federal Election Commission on Monday. The Democrats’ total accounts for roughly half of the $12.8 million that the committee raised from April 1 through June 30. The DSCC spent close to $2.3 million in June and ended the month with more than $7.9 million in cash on hand and a debt of more than $3.7 million. The committee began the cycle with close to $11 million in debts. The NRSC ended June with $4.3 million in cash on hand after spending $2.9 million. It has no debt left over from the previous cycle. The DSCC spent slightly less than it raised in the second quarter, around $12 million. The NRSC raised $10.6 million in the quarter.For the year to date, the NRSC has raised a little more than $20 million.
