Obama to donors: 'Feel a sense of urgency' about midterms

Los Angeles (CNN) - Faced with difficult odds in November's midterm elections, President Obama's trying to fire up the base, and energize major donors to the Democratic party as he makes a major fundraising swing along the West Coast.

"My main message to all of you is feel a sense of urgency about this election. This is my last campaign, and I'm going to put everything I've got into it, but I need you to feel that this is just as important, because we can't afford to wait until 2016," the President said at a fundraiser in Los Angeles Wednesday night for both the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

Democrats top GOP last month in Senate cash battle

Washington (CNN) - In the 2014 battle for the Senate, the Democrats' "best month" beat out the Republicans' "best month."

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee reported Wednesday that they raised $8.1 million in March, their best month of fundraising this cycle. The Senate Democrats' re-election arm says it's now brought in over $74 million since the beginning of the midterm election season, and they have just over $22 million cash on hand with zero debt.

Washington (CNN) - With President Barack Obama's approval ratings near all-time lows, there are a number of congressional Democrats facing challenging reelection campaigns this year who aren't screaming for him to join them on the campaign trail.

But when it comes to fundraising, Obama remains the party's top rainmaker, and lawmakers definitely want his help accumulating campaign cash.

New numbers in Senate fundraising battle

Washington (CNN) - The Senate GOP re-election committee was out raised last month by its Democratic rival, but the National Republican Senatorial Committee says that when debt is factored in, the two party committees are on near equal financial footing.

The NRSC Friday announced that it brought in $3.18 million in fundraising in November, with $6.4 million cash on hand and no debt. At the beginning of the week the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee announced that it raised $5.1 million last month, with $12 million cash on hand and debt of around $5 million.
