The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) raked in $14.4 million in the month of December, marking its best fundraising month of 2019.
The latest numbers brought the committee’s 2019 fundraising total to $125 million.
Last month’s haul surpasses the committee’s November number of $9 million, as well as the $9.5 million the group raised in December of 2017 before the 2018 midterm elections.
The group raised nearly $5 million of its most recent monthly total online.
