Déjà vu: 2014 wars begin over Medicare, budget

(CNN) – Not wasting a minute, Democratic campaign groups in Congress are bringing Rep. Paul Ryan's budget plan–which he's set to release Tuesday–into the line of fire, attempting to make it a wedge issue in the 2014 midterm elections.

But Republicans are hitting back, attacking Democrats for their lack of a balanced budget one day before Senate Budget Chairwoman Patty Murray is expected to make public the Senate's budget plan.

House Democratic campaign raises more than $6 million in January

(CNN) - They've set their eyes on winning back control of the U.S. House next year, and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee says it started off this year by bringing in cash and reducing debt.

The committee raised $6.1 million in January, a DCCC aide told CNN. That means they have $4.6 million in the bank, but $12.6 million in outstanding debt.

Congressional committees report final 2012 fundraising

Washington (CNN) - The Democratic and Republican committees tasked with electing candidates to the House of Representatives are closing the book on the 2012 election cycle, with Democrats saying they brought in $184 million and Republicans raising $144 million.

The Democrats' figure was roughly $20 million more than they took in during the 2010 cycle, which saw them lose control of the House. In 2012, Democrats gained eight seats in the lower chamber, not enough to regain the majority.

House Democrats to target 48 GOP seats in 2014

Washington (CNN) – As it tries again in 2014 to win back control of the House of Representatives, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee says it's got its eyes on 48 Republican-held seats.

"We need 17 seats to pick up the House. So we begin with an early universe of 30 districts where the incumbent got less than 10% and an additional 18 districts that we think can perform better in an off year than an on year," DCCC Chairman Steve Israel told reporters Thursday.

Democrats target House Republicans in radio spots

(CNN) – Republicans in the House who have refused to sign on to a petition allowing a vote on extending Bush-era tax cuts are being targeted in radio and web advertisements by Democrats, who want to extend the cuts only on households making less than $250,000 per year.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee said Wednesday they would air the ads against 21 House Republicans who have refused to sign the discharge petition advanced by Democrats. The Bush-era cuts expire at the end of the year.
