Aides to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi say she has raised more than $93 million for Democratic candidates trying to whittle down her chamber’s Republican majority in this November’s elections.
The aides said in a statement Wednesday that the sum includes $37 million she raised for House Democrats from April through June this year. Nearly $33 million of that amount was for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, the House Democrats’ fund-raising arm.
Both parties’ leaders are usually top money raisers for House candidates. Overall, hundreds of millions of dollars will be spent by the parties, candidates and outside groups on House races.
Republicans hold a 247-188 House majority, including two vacant seats highly likely to remain Democratic.
Democrats would need to gain an unlikely 30 seats to win control.
