The Republican National Committee raised $13.5 million in September — its best September haul ever in a midterm election year.

“September’s fundraising exceeded expectations — even after the tremendous support we’ve received throughout the year,” RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said.

Through September, the RNC has raised $163.9 million for the cycle, while the DNC, which brought in roughly $10.2 million in September, has raised $143.16 million for the cycle, The Hill reported.

Mr. Priebus said financial boosts had come for the Republicans’ House and Senate campaign arms, which have lagged behind their Democratic counterparts in terms of fundraising this cycle.

“As a result of our successful fundraising, the RNC has been able to help our partners at the NRSC and NRCC, as well as put more money into targeted races to help with crucial get out the vote efforts on the ground and online,” Mr. Priebus said.

The RNC has also taken a $5 million loan out to support candidates in the final days of the election.
