WASHINGTON (CNN) – The latest fundraising numbers show that the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee significantly outraised its Republican counterpart in June, though the two committees have raked in close to the same amount over the entire year.

The DSCC reported Monday raising $6.2 million last month compared to the National Republican Senatorial Committee's $3.4 million in the same time period. Since Jan. 1, the DSCC has raised $23.2 million, while the NRSC has taken in $20.1 million.

The DSCC also has a little less than double cash-on-hand as the NRSC, $7.9 million to $4.3 million. However, the DSCC is carrying a debt of $3.7 million, while the NRSC reports holding no debts.

    All the money in the world won't help them if they don't pass healthcare reform. If they are not smart enough to remember what happened in 1994 when they were too cowardly to pass it then they don't deserve to stay in the majority.
    Lead follow or get out of the way.

    Why are people whining about the economy when so many people are throwing money away for these campaigns that are a year away? Wouldn't these millions do a lot of good for needed programs? Think, people. SARAHPAC and these committees will do nothing for the good of America. Give your money to good causes. Give to food banks, pay down your mortgage, and save for your retirement! As Sarah said about Alaska, she was glad when oil prices went down because then the state would have less money to spend. If these characters have less money, that means fewer nasty commercials!

    I sent my donation to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign fund, and urge you to do the same. Now is not the time to falter. I am also supporting Alex Sink here in Fla. She will be an AWESOME governor. We are so sick of these Republicans here and their love of developers and hatred for education. We are itching to throw the bums out!!

    They raised more money because the American people can see through the Gop and its wanting Obama and America to fail. Failure is the only way back for the GOP. They put party way ahead of country.
    We the American people have seen the results of 8 years of failed policies. The GOP and Bush administration left the mess to President Obama, and now they want him to fail, like George Bush failed. We the American people know where the blame is and we say yes while all the GOP can do is whine and say NO.

    They (the Dems) probably stole it from the TARP Funds; probably in the Bill they signed before anyone had time to read it.

    One can't help but wonder how much this has to do with the sorry performance of the GOP senators on the Judiciary Committee.

    While Democrats generally talked matters of substance, Republicans returned time and again to divisive racial politics. This in spite of the fact that those tactics failed miserably in the last election cycle.

    The Republican Party needs to find a positive message and it needs to do it yesterday.
