The campaign arm for Senate Republicans announced Wednesday it raised $25 million over the last three months.

The National Republican Senate Committee said it now has more than $27 million cash on hand, and said it has brought in $76.2 over the course of the year — more than its entire fundraising haul in 2019.

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, the campaign arm for Senate Democrats, has yet to release its latest numbers.

Republican officials say they see a good chance the party can reclaim control of both the Senate and House in the November 2022 midterm elections.

“Democrats are seeing slumping poll numbers and declining enthusiasm among voters as Joe Biden and [Senate Democratic leader] Chuck Schumer fail hard-working Americans from all walks of life,” said Sen. Rick Scott of Florida, chairman of the NRSC. “Meanwhile, the NRSC is seeing strong grassroots energy to elect a Republican Senate majority to serve as a check on Joe Biden’s radical, reckless, socialist agenda.”

The latest report from the DSCC, released last month, showed it had raised $59 million for the year and had $10.5 million cash on hand.

Midterm elections are typically tough on the sitting president’s party, and political analysts generally agree Republicans are well-positioned to flip control of the House.

The Senate is shaping up to be more of an uphill battle because a number of the high-profile races are playing out in states that President Biden carried in 2020 and that have been trending Democrat.
