(ReliableNews.org) – The 2022 midterm elections are a little more than a year away with Republicans hoping to take back the majority in the House and possibly the Senate. Top officials in the party have been pushing hard raising funds to make that happen and recently they got very good news.
On Wednesday, July 14, the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) released its fundraising data for quarter two. The fundraising arm of the House GOP raised $45.4 million from April through June with $20 million coming from the last month alone. Rep. Tom Emmer (R-MN), the chairman of the organization told vulnerable Democrats that they should start “eyeing the exits because if they choose to run, they will lose.” He said he believes his party will take back the majority in the House, and voters are “doing everything they can” to make that happen.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) also released its numbers, showing it raised $36.5 million. Although that’s a healthy amount, it’s nearly $10 million less than the GOP raised.
The massive fundraising haul means the House GOP caucus has plenty of money to battle Democratic lawmakers next year. Campaign ads, rallies, canvassing, etc gets expensive but if the money is spent wisely to go after vulnerable Democrats, Republicans could very well gain the five seats they need to take back power.
