Could this be true?
In a surprising turn of events, it now appears that the Democrats’ House reelection arm has massively out-raised the Republicans last year. This comes as bad news for the GOP as both parties are currently preparing for a tough battle in the November midterm elections
According to data provided by Fox, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is claiming to have hauled in an astounding $146 million in 2021 which was more than the $20 million they raised in the previous election cycle.
Surprisingly, $74 million of the DCCC’s money raised was actually donated to them by around 700,000 grassroots donors.
House Democrats know that they are going to have to fight like hell if they want to keep their razor-thin House majority following the midterm elections. Sadly, the shocking amount that they were able to raise last year shows they are prepared to put up a serious fight in November.
What is bad news for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Biden is that the Republicans only need to win five seats in the House to take power and make Republican Kevin McCarthy the House Speaker.
After the massive haul Democrats were able to pull in last year, DCCC chair Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney stated, “With President Biden and Speaker Pelosi’s leadership, Democrats head into the election year with strong financial support and trust from the American people.”
