(CNN) - The Republican National Committee reported Monday raising $7.8 million in the month of August, besting its Democratic counterpart by $1 million over the same 30-day period.
During a month of heightened GOP attacks against President Obama's health care reform proposals, the RNC also reported averaging 9,306 donations for each day of August and an average individual contribution of $41. The committee said it has $21 million cash on hand and $0 in debt.
According to a weekend filing with the Federal Elections Commission, the DNC raised $6.8 million last month, and has just over $15 million cash on hand. The organization is also carrying more than $5 million in debt.
