NRCC Burns Cash in October for Special Election

The National Republican Congressional Committee spent more than it raised in the month of October, according to fundraising numbers due to be reported to the Federal Election Commission on Friday.The NRCC raised $3.4 million in October but spent $3.6 million. That’s only slightly more than what the committee brought in during the month of September. The committee will report having $4.2 million in cash on hand and $2 million in debt at the end of the month.Much of what the NRCC spent was in the form of independent expenditures in the special election in New York’s 23rd district. The committee spent almost $900,000 on the GOP nominee, Dede Scozzafava, who dropped out of the race the weekend before the election, and Democrat Bill Owens went on to win the race.The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is expected to release its fundraising totals later Friday.
