The Democratic National Committee had a poor month of fundraising in June, only bringing in $5.5 million, according to a new campaign finance filing.

The DNC ended the month with $7.4 million in the bank, Politico reports.

The DNC's fundraising numbers were poor compared to those of the Republican National Committee, which brought in $13.5 million in June and ended the month with $44.7 million cash on hand.

The RNC said it was free of debt, while the DNC is $3.3 million in debt.

Democrats were able to raise large sums of money for special elections for congressional seats that have occurred in 2017, but they were unable to flip any of the Republican-held seats to Democratic control.
