So far the DSCC has raised a total of $106.9 million this election cycle with $27 million cash on hand at the end of the quarter.
Both political parties are battling to win control of the upper chamber, each pouring fund-raising dollars into a number of highly-contested races throughout the country.
Democrats currently control the Senate 53-47, with two independents who caucus with the Democrats, but are defending 23 of the 33 seats up for grabs in November.
DSCC executive director Guy Cecil said "enthusiasm is high" and the committee is hoping to keep the momentum on their side.
"Republicans are now spending millions defending half of their seats, and we are running ahead in blue states and red states alike," said Cecil. "While Republicans have employed a failed strategy to make this election a referendum on President Obama, Democrats have focused on defining a clear choice for voters."
The National Republican Senatorial Committee had yet to announce its fund-raising figures for the quarter.
