DCCC outraises NRCC in March

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee outraised its Republican counterpart in March by about $400,000.

The National Republican Congressional Committee announced Sunday that it pulled in about $9.9 million in March and ended the month with $31.2 million in the bank. The DCCC announced last week that it brought in $10.3 million and ended March with $40.2 million in the bank.

President Obama continued lending support to the DCCC last month, appearing at a Miami fundraiser.

The DCCC raised more money from January through March, hauling in $23.6 million to the NRCC's  $21.2 million. Neither committee is carrying any debt.

House Democrats need to pick up 17 seats to win back the majority, a goal that strategists in both parties agree is all but impossible.
