Bloomberg By the Numbers: $343 Million

 

The six major political party committees raised $343 million during the first 11 months of 2013, up from $326 million during the same period in 2009, according to the Campaign Finance Institute, a Washington-based research organization.

While the Republican National Committee outraised the Democratic National Committee and has more money in the bank, the fundraising committees for House and Senate Democrats heading into the 2014 midterm elections took in more money than their Republican counterparts.  Both Democratic congressional committees have bigger bank account balances than the Republican committees a year before voters decide which party will control each chamber of Congress.

All three Republican committees report no debt, while the Democratic National Committee still owes $15.6 million from the 2012 elections and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has $5 million in unpaid bills.
