Washington (CNN) - The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has $16 million more in the bank than the National Republican Congressional Committee heading into November, according to the latest fundraising totals released Tuesday afternoon.
The DCCC raised more than $9.7 million, while the NRCC took in $8 million last month, the committees reported. At the beginning of April, the DCCC had $26 million cash-on-hand, compared to the NRCC's $10 million in the bank.
The DCCC and NRCC are the campaign arms for their respective political parties.
Despite the huge cash disadvantage, Republicans are expected to pick up seats in November.
