Fundraising roundup: Democratic House and Senate committees win May

The House and Senate Democratic campaign arms won the month of May, with each outpacing its Republican counterpart in the money chase.

The Democratic committees have been boosted by fundraising help from President Obama throughout the 2014 election cycle. Here's a breakdown of the May numbers:

— The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee outraised the National Republican Senatorial Committee $8.3 million to $5.8 million. The DSCC ended the month with $28.2 million in the bank, while the NRSC had $22.1 million.

— The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee outraised the National Republican Congressional Committee $7.3 million to $6 million. The DCCC ended the month with $45.9 million in the bank; the NRCC had $35.2 million.

— The Democratic National Committee raised $8.6 million in May and brought its debt down to $4.9 million. The DNC was carrying as much as $15.9 million in debt at the end of January. The committee ended May with $7.9 million in the bank. The Republican National Committee has not released its May numbers.
