In debt, the DNC said it owed $20.4 million, while the RNC held $9.9 million in debt.

The Republican committee also spent about twice their Democratic counterparts, $42.4 million to $22.8 million. At the end of the month, the RNC had $82.6 million cash on hand and the DNC had $4.6 million in the bank.

The month began with the Democratic National Convention and also saw the release of a secretly recorded video of Romney at a fund-raiser. The Republican National Convention concluded at the end of August, and the first presidential debate was held days after this fund-raising period closed.

President Barack Obama, meanwhile, raised $181 million and Republican challenger Mitt Romney raised $170 in September, CNN reported earlier in the month.

The party committees and presidential campaigns have fund-raised jointly.

    The GOP work hard to raise money and never lifted a hand to help American people get jobs, Obama has been busy working hard to put Americans back to work. Now if Republicans can work hard to raise money, whose more important?

    The RNC gets their money from a few billionaires trying to buy America. President Obama gets it from millions of fans.
