The fund-raising achievements and the financial positions of the two national party committees in charge of collecting and spending money on behalf of House candidates have undergone major reversals since the Democrats seized control of the U.S. House of Representatives in last year's elections. During the first six months of 2007, according to reports filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC), the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) raised $36.4 million, nearly $7 million more than the $29.5 million raised by the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC). On June 30, the DCCC had $19.5 million in cash on hand and debts of $4.1 million, leaving a "free-cash" position (cash-on-hand minus debt) of $15.4 million at midyear. By contrast, the NRCC had only $2 million in cash on June 30 and $4.3 million in debt. Thus, the NRCC's free-cash position was a negative $2.3 million, a situation the NRCC had not encountered since mid-1993, the last time Republicans were the minority party in the House.
