RNC outraises DNC by more than two-to-one for a sixth consecutive month, Democrats retain House committee fundraising lead

The Republican National Committee (RNC) has outraised its Democratic counterpart by more than two-to-one for a sixth consecutive month, while the Democratic House committee outraised its Republican counterpart, according to November 2019 campaign finance reports filed with the FEC Wednesday.
 
The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) raised $6.7 million and spent $4.8 million last month, while the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) raised $5.4 million and spent $5.6 million. In the 2020 cycle, the NRSC has raised 8.8% more than the DSCC ($54.4 million to $49.8 million). The NRSC’s 8.8% fundraising advantage is up from 7.1% in October but down from 12.3% in September.
 
On the House side, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) raised $12.2 million and spent $4.8 million, while the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) raised $10.0 million and spent $5.6 million. In the 2020 cycle, the DCCC has raised 36.0% more than the NRCC ($101.3 million to $70.4 million). The DCCC’s 36.0% fundraising advantage is down from 38.4% in October and 36.6% in September.
 
At this point in the 2018 campaign cycle, Democrats led in both Senate and House fundraising, although their advantage in the House was smaller than in this cycle. The DSCC had raised 19.7% more than the NRSC ($44.4 million to $36.5 million), while the DCCC had raised 14.3% more than the NRCC ($89.1 million to $77.2 million).
 
Republicans lead in national committee fundraising. The Republican National Committee (RNC) raised $25.3 million and spent $23.1 million while the Democratic National Committee (DNC) raised $9.0 million and spent $8.9 million. In the 2020 cycle, the RNC has raised 89.1% more than the DNC ($194.0 million to $74.5 million). The RNC’s 89.1% fundraising advantage is up from 88.2% in October and 83.0% in September.
 
At this point in the 2016 campaign cycle (the most recent presidential election cycle) the RNC had a smaller 54.3% fundraising advantage over the DNC ($89.3 million to $51.2 million).
 
So far in the 2020 cycle, the RNC, NRSC, and NRCC have raised 34.2% more than the DNC, DSCC, and DCCC ($318.8 million to $225.6 million). The Republican fundraising advantage is up from 32.7% in October and 31.5% in September.
