The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) continued to outpace its Republican counterpart in fundraising in August, hauling in $7.7 million as both sides prepare to unload their resources during the final stretch of campaigning ahead of Election Day.

Thanks in part to President Obama’s role on the fundraising circuit, including an event Monday, the DSCC has brought in a total of $111.2 million for the cycle and finished with $25.3 million on hand at the end of August.

“With less than 50 days until Election Day, Democrats are in strong position to hold the majority,” Executive Director Guy Cecil said.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) brought in $6.1 million in August and finished the month with $19.9 million on hand.

Despite being outraised, GOP officials are confident they will have the resources to flip the six seats necessary to re-take control of the U.S. Senate on a map and in an environment that favors Republicans.
