Washington (CNN) - The Senate Democrat's re-election committee is touting what it calls its best non-election year November fundraising haul ever.
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee announced Monday that it raised $5.1 million last month, and some of that credit goes to President Barack Obama, who was the main attraction at some top dollar fundraisers for the committee.
The DSCC, which raises money in support of Democratic senators up for re-election and Democratic Senate candidates, also reports having $12 million cash on hand and debt of $5 million.
The committee says its November haul brings to $48.6 million the amount of money its raised this year.
The rival National Republican Senatorial Committee says it will release its November fundraising totals later this week. Through the end of October, the NRSC had brought in just shy of $30 million, with $5 million cash on hand and no debt.
When it comes to fundraising, the DSCC says that congressional Republicans are actually helping them.
"The reckless and irresponsible Republican agenda remains wildly unpopular and Democrats across the country are energized," said DSCC Executive Director Guy Cecil, in a statement.
The Democrats currently hold a 55 (53 Democrats and two independents who caucus with the party) to 45 majority in the Senate, but they are defending 21 of the 35 seats up for grabs in the November 2014 midterm elections.
