The National Republican Congressional Committee announced Friday night it raised $8.5 million in July, outpacing the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which last month brought in $6.2 million.

The RNCC now has $22.1 million cash-on-hand, compared to $36 million for the DCCC, with roughly 10 weeks remaining until the November midterm elections. 

Paul Lindsey, spokesman for the RNCC, the major fundraising arm for House Republicans, said $1 million of the July money came from House Republican Leader John Boehner's campaign account.

Mr. Lindsey also said July marked the fourth straight month -- and the fifth time in seven months -- that the RNCC outraised the DCCC.

He also pointed to other signs that show the NRCC is closing the fundraising gap on Democrats, including having raised $3.6 million more than the DCCC in 2010.
