WASHINGTON — House Democrats’ chief political arm maintained a record-breaking fundraising pace in October, adding $7 million to its existing $25 million cash horde as campaigning for next year’s election intensifies, according to a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee aide.
The DCCC has raised more money at this point than in any prior election cycle, even when adjusting for inflation. The committee has raised $65.2 million through the end of October.
“House Republicans’ reckless and irresponsible agenda is not only driving their approval ratings to record lows -– it’s rallying our support to record highs,” DCCC Chairman Steve Israel (D-N.Y.) said in a statement. “The American people believe enough is enough -– and they’ve had enough with the dysfunction of this Republican Congress and the pain they’ve caused America’s middle class.”
