Washington (CNN) – In the Senate campaign money race, Democrats have the advantage as the second quarter numbers come in.
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee reports it raised $7.1 million in the month of June, besting the National Republican Senatorial Committee who reports a $4.03 million haul over the same period.
The Democrats say they pulled in $15.25 million in the second quarter while their Republican counterparts did not report a quarterly figure. Both campaign committees have full coffers however as Republicans have $19.7 million cash on hand and the Democrats exceed them, reporting in excess of $21 million.
"As November approaches, enthusiasm for Democrats is only growing, as evidenced by our strong fundraising numbers and the strong fundraising totals of Democratic candidates across the country," said DSCC Executive Director J.B. Poersch in a statement.
In his own statement, NRSC Executive Director Rob Jesmer said the Republicans are gaining momentum heading into the fall campaign season.
"The voter enthusiasm we're seeing in the polls for Republican candidates is translating into critical financial resources that will allow them to run competitive races and win in November. It's obvious that an increasing number of Americans want change in Washington, and they will have the opportunity to restore checks-and-balances by voting for Senate Republicans this November," Jesmer said.
