Democrats top GOP in late fundraising

October 27, 2006


— The Democrats' congressional campaign committees raised $15.5 million during the first 18 days of October, setting up their final push to reclaim both chambers. Republicans, meanwhile, raised $10.1 million for their candidates, continuing a pace that has lagged this election.

Republicans slightly beat the Democrats' House committee but stumbled on the Senate side, where a $5.5 million fundraising disparity emerged during the Oct. 1-17 reporting period. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee raised $9.1 million; the National Republican Senatorial Committee raised $3.6 million.
