House Republicans have long argued that one of the reasons Democrats consistently show more cash on hand in monthly fundraising reports is because the GOP is on a more back-loaded fundraising calendar. But it’s getting pretty late in the cycle to make up a $16.6 million difference, and it’s not like Republicans haven’t been trying. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee began June with $28.6 million in the bank while the National Republican Congressional Committee had $12 million. The NRCC raised $5.4 million while spending $4.8 million in May. The DCCC raised $5.1 million and spent about $3.8 million. Since the start of the cycle, the DCCC has raised about $84.6 million to the NRCC’s $66.4 million.
