Washington (CNN) – Last week the Democratic National Committee announced it raised a record $16 million last month. This week the DNC is announcing where it's investing some of that big cash haul.
Monday, the DNC said it's transferring this month $5.5 million to the Democrat's House and Senate election committees and to state party committees.
According to the DNC, $1.83 million goes to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee with an equal amount transferred to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
The Ohio Democratic party chapter receives half a million dollars, with the state party in Wisconsin receiving $300,000, followed by a quarter million to Minnesota and New Hampshire, $233,000 to Oregon, $200,000 to Maine and $100,000 to the state party in South Carolina. Ohio and Minnesota have competitive gubernatorial contests, as does New Hampshire and Oregon.
The transfers are part of what the DNC says is a $50 million "Vote 2010" midterm election program.
DNC communications director Brad Woodhouse calls the effort "the largest midterm investment ever by the DNC," and add that "more than $20 million of which is cash transferred directly to committees and state parties."
