(CNN) – Congressional Republicans are reporting another big cash-haul for the month of June in what is the latest sign the GOP is benefiting from enthusiasm amongst its supporters as the midterm election season gears up.
The National Republican Congressional Committee says it raised $9 million last month and currently has $17 million cash-on-hand. For the quarter, the NRCC says its raised $21.2 million. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee meanwhile has yet to report its June fundraising haul.
Update, 6:09 p.m.: The DCCC announced for the second quarter it has raised $19.259 million and has $33.783 million cash on hand.
Buoyed by an energetic base and increasing chatter about a possible Republican takeover of the House, the NRCC has neared parity with their Democratic counterparts in fundraising after two cycles of being severely outraised.
But the GOP still remains at a disadvantage when it comes to cash on hand. According to the latest reports filed with the Federal Elections Commission at the end of May, Democrats had $28 million in the bank – $11 million more than the GOP says it currently has stowed away.
News of the NRCC's fundraising comes a week after White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs irked some congressional Democrats when he said on NBC's Meet the Press that it's possible the GOP could take control of the House in November.
"I think there's no doubt there are enough seats in play that could cause Republicans to gain control," said Gibbs. "There's no doubt about that."
In May, the NRCC launched what it's calling "Battleground" fundraising – a push that seeks cash support from House Republicans who can spare to give excess campaign funds to the committee. Several Republicans have responded with pledges to steer funds the NRCC's way, including House Minority Leader John Boehner who says he will pony up $1 million.
