The Democratic National Committee (DNC) far outperformed its Republican National Committee (RNC) counterpart in fundraising in October.
The latest Federal Election Commission (FEC) campaign filings show the DNC, chaired by Jaime Harrison, brought in $13.1 million last month, compared to the RNC’s $7.1 million.
The DNC spent $15.9 million and had $17.7 million on hand at the end of the month, with $238,000 in debt. The RNC, chaired by Ronna McDaniel, spent $7.3 million and closed the month with $9.1 million on hand and $2.9 million in debt.
October’s fundraising numbers are similar to September’s, when the DNC raised $13.3 million in and the RNC raised $6.3 million.
In August, the DNC raised $7 million and the RNC raised $9.7 million. And in July, the DNC raised $9.6 million and the RNC raised $6.4 million.
The numbers come as campaigning heats up on both sides in the lead-up to the 2024 election season. Currently, former President Trump is leading the GOP primary polling by a large margin, setting up a likely 2024 rematch between President Biden and Trump.
