WASHINGTON (CNN) - The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee outraised its Republican counterpart in September, according to numbers released Friday
The DSCC announced Friday that it brought in almost $10.2 million this quarter - including $5.9 million in the month of September - which brings its grand total over $10.3 million cash-on-hand. The committee was aided in September by a joint fundraiser with President Obama and Sen. Arlen Specter, which netted about $1 million for the committee.
"For the third straight quarter, the DSCC outraised the NRSC and has a significant cash-on-hand advantage heading into 2010," DSCC spokesman J.B. Poersch boasted in a statement.
The National Republican Senatorial raised $3.2 million in September, and currently has $5.2 million in the bank. Senate Republicans had outraised the Democrats in July and August.
