The House Republican fundraising arm outraised its Democratic counterpart in May, according to figures shared by the organizations.

The National Republican Congressional Committee raised over $14 million last month, its third straight record-breaking month for fundraising, the group says. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in the same month brought in just under $10 million.

The May fundraising hauls bring the NRCC's cash on hand to $42.1 million, topping the DCCC's cash reserves by $6 million.

Both groups have scored record fundraising numbers this year. The DCCC narrowly outraised the NRCC in April, but a $5 million boost from the Republican National Committee helped put the NRCC on top in May.

Republicans are looking to retake control of the House in the 2022 midterms after losing power in 2018. The party needs to gain just five seats to win back the House.
