The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee easily outpaced the National Republican Congressional Committee in November fundraising in large part because of big giving from its much larger membership.
The DCCC received $978,000 of its $3.6 million in November receipts in the form of transfers from the campaign committees of House Democrats, according to a CQ Politics analysis of a fundraising report recently filed with the Federal Election Commission. The NRCC received about $300,000 from its membership in November, when it raised $2.3 million.
In keeping with tradition, Democratic leaders were the biggest donors to the DCCC last month. Majority Whip James E. Clyburn (S.C.) transferred $200,000 to the DCCC and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) and Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (Md.) each gave $100,000.
