Democrats, the minority party, have been aggressively working to grab back 25 seats in the House in order to retake the majority. The party lost control of the chamber in 2010 after a massive 63 seat pick-up by the Republicans.
The DCCC said it had $10.1 million cash on hand, and the NRCC reports having $11 million in the bank with less than two weeks before Election Day.
The Democratic group touts raising $16 million more than the GOP group this cycle, with the DCCC taking in $151.9 million compared to the NRCC's $135.7 million.
Despite being outraised, Rep. Pete Sessions of Texas, who chairs the NRCC, suggested Friday on CNN's "Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien" that he was confident about Republican messaging this election.
"I think we're doing a great job," Session said, pointing to the two different economic paths presented on the presidential campaign trail and in congressional races. "That's why House Republicans are winning and I think Mitt Romney can do the same."
