Election 2010

Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee

Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has reported spending a total of $63,244,600 on independent campaigning through October 2010, with 100% benefiting Democratic candidates. Back to group list.

The Democratic Party's fund for House races, the DCCC, is one of the biggest spenders in politics. Although it is officially associated with the Democratic Party and its funds are raised by lawmakers, most of the DCCC's spending is controlled by employees who can have no contact with lawmakers or candidates because laws require the money to be spent independently.

Spending on "issue ads" targeting candidates will not be included if it is more than 30 days before a primary or more than 60 days before the general election. "Weeks on list" shows the total number of weeks that a group or race has been in the top ten throughout the year.
