(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.

But Republicans still have over $5 million more in cash on hand. I wonder how much Democrats and the unions wasted in Wisconsin? All money right out the window. Good work dummies!
I DID IT! I did that. Uh-huh. I did. Uh-huh. Uh-huh.
Maybe Adelson can give the RNC $100 million of his foreign gambling money.
Who cares ??
The Quote of the Decade:
“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America 's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America 's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”
~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006
I just hope all this money translates into ANOTHER victory for the current POTUS.
Obama 2012 ALL the way.
