(CNSNews.com) -- A report filed by The Democratic National Committee (DNC) on June 20 revealed that the DNC has had its worst fundraising for the month of May since 2003, some 14 years ago.

Records from the Federal Election Commission (FEC) show that the DNC raised $4.29 million in May 2017; in May 2016, the DNC raised $12.3 million.

Back in May 2003, the DNC raised $2.03 million.

Hallie Jackson, an NBC News White House correspondent and anchor for MSNBC,  confronted DNC Chairman Tom Perez today and asked him why the DNC had its worst fundraising for the month of April since 2009.

“The DNC, you’ve talked about doubling the budget from $50 million and $100 million this year, but the DNC had its worst fundraising in April since 2009 -- it just posted,” said Jackson. “Where does the extra $50 million going to come from?”

Perez said, “Well again, I got there on March 1 [as new DNC chairman]. And so I was the first to say, we have a lot of rebuilding to do.”

The DNC raised $438,000 less in May than in April 2017. The political group brought in $4.7 million in April, according to the FEC.
