The Democratic National Committee (DNC) hauled in $8.5 million in June, the same month it held its first presidential primary debates and $1.7 million more than it raised the previous month.
New Federal Election Commission disclosures show that the DNC spend $7.5 million last month and finished June with about $9.3 million cash on hand.
However, the most recent filings suggest the DNC likely lagging behind its Republican counterpart – the Republican National Committee has not yet disclosed its June fundraising figures but ended May with $37 million cash on hand.
Of its expenses, the DNC spent heavily on setting up events, doling out $221,000 on catering, $106,000 on “event production & site rentals,” $61,000 on “event decorations,” $50,000 on expenses marked as “event consulting” and $19,000 on security.
The filing did not specify which expenses were designated specifically for the two-day debate in Miami late last month, which showcased 20 candidates competing for the party's nomination to take on President TrumpDonald John TrumpUS-Saudi Arabia policy needs a dose of 'realpolitik' Trump talks to Swedish leader about rapper A$AP Rocky, offers to vouch for his bail Matt Gaetz ahead of Mueller hearing: 'We are going to reelect the president' MORE next year.
