(CNN) - The official committees tasked with electing Democrats to the U.S. House narrowly outraised the Republican effort, $6.68 million to $6 million, in May, numbers disclosed by the committees on Tuesday showed.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee said their May haul means they have $27.5 million in the bank for the fall election, and said their total fund-raising this cycle is $96.75 million.

The National Republican Congressional Committee said it has more cash on hand, $33.8 million.
The DSCC outspent the NRCC, approximately $4.1 million to $3.4 million, according to the numbers announced Tuesday and previous Federal Election Commission records.
Both committees say they have no debt.
In the previous month, the tables were turned: the NRCC brought in $6.9 million in April, while the DCCC raised $6.4 million.
The NRCC "Patriot Program" has 33 candidates slated for congressional races in 18 states.
The DCCC "Drive for 25" effort is seeking to pick up 25 seats, the number Democrats need to take control of the House. They said Tuesday that their larger Red to Blue program has plans to advertize on broadcast television in 60 districts, including 37 held by Republicans and 12 open seats, and will spend at least $46.1 million.
