Six major political party committees have raised a combined $478 million over the first seven months of the 2022 election cycle. In July, the committees raised $83 million, according to recent filings with the Federal Election Commission.
The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) raised $7.0 million and spent $5.2 million in July, while the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) raised $11.3 million and spent $6.2 million. So far in the 2022 election cycle, the NRCC has raised 5.2% more than the DCCC ($86.3 million to $81.9 million). This is the first time the DCCC has outraised the NRCC since April.
The senatorial committees raised less than their house counterparts last month. The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) raised $7.5 million and spent $8.4 million. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) raised $6.5 million and spent $7.8 million. The NRSC has raised 10.1% more than the DSCC so far in the 2022 election cycle ($58.7 million to $53.1 million).
At this point in the 2020 election cycle, the NRSC also led the DSCC in fundraising, but by a wider 16.6% margin ($38.9 million to $33.0 million). The DCCC led the NRCC in fundraising by a 34.6% margin ($69.0 million to $48.6 million).

So far in the 2022 election cycle, the DNC has raised 2.3% more than the RNC ($100.2 million to $97.9 million).
At this time in the 2020 election cycle, the opposite was true. The RNC led the DNC in fundraising by 80% ($117.9 million to $50.5 million).
So far in the 2022 election cycle, the RNC, NRSC, and NRCC have raised 3.2% more than the DNC, DSCC, and DCCC ($242.9 million to $235.2 million). The Republican committees’ fundraising advantage is down from 5.3% last month.
