DCCC Outraises NRCC in May 2019

Laura Barrón-López, writing for POLITICO:

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee raised $8.9 million in May, posting another strong fundraising haul in the year before the 2020 election.

It's nearly double the National Republican Congressional Committee's $4.8 million raised in May, according to its filing with the Federal Election Commission on Thursday.

Out of the $8.8 million raised by DCCC in May — which is slightly less than the $9.3 million the committee raised in May of 2017 — $4.5 million came from small dollar contributions with an average donation of $17, according to the DCCC.

Clearly, this is the problem that the NRCC hired Targeted Victory to solve.
