(CNSNews.com) -- According the June Federal Election Commission report, in addition to adding to their growing debt, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) fell behind the Republican National Committee (RNC) in monthly fundraising.
Adding on to their recent pattern of historically low fundraising efforts, the DNC raised $5.5 million in the month of June, almost $8 million less than the $13.5 million raised by the RNC.
After spending $5.7 million in the month of June, the DNC has $7.5 million on hand compared to the RNC, who spent $10.6 million in June and has $44.7 million on hand.
The DNC, which is prepping for the 2018 mid-term elections after multiple losses in recent special congressional elections, added $200,000 to their growing debt, bringing their total debt to $3.3 million. The RNC reported that they acquired zero debt in the month of June.
Although lower than that of their RNC counterpart, the DNC’s June fundraising numbers did jump from the $4.29 million raised in May of 2017.
