National Republican Congressional Committee overtakes Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in fundraising, according to June FEC filings

Six party committees have raised a combined $337 million over the first five months of the 2022 election cycle. In May, the committees raised $65 million, according to recent filings with the Federal Election Commission. Here’s a closer look at May’s fundraising numbers:

The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) raised $14.1 million and spent $6.1 million in May, while the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) raised $9.9 million and spent $6.0 million. So far in the 2022 election cycle, the NRCC has raised 5.0% more than the DCCC ($59.2 million to $56.3 million). The NRCC overtook the DCCC fundraising lead this month. In April, the DCCC led by 2.7% ($46.3 million to $45.1 million).

The senatorial committees raised less than their house counterparts last month, with the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) raising $10.4 million and spending $3.9 million and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) raising $7.2 million and spending $7.3 million. The gap between the NRSC’s and DSCC’s total fundraising is the widest of the three committee pairs we track. The NRSC has raised 10.9% more than the DSCC so far in the 2022 election cycle ($40.7 million to $36.5 million). The NRSC fundraising lead widened between April and May. In April, the NRSC led by 3.4% ($30.3 million to $29.3 million).
