House Democrats' campaign arm raises $7.3M in May

WASHINGTON (AP) -- House Democrats' campaign arm says it raised $7.3 million last month.

A summary of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's fundraising in May released Friday shows the group sitting on $45.9 million in the bank. The group has asked television stations to set aside $44 million in advertising time starting this fall.

House Republicans, who are defending their majority, also faced a Friday deadline to disclose their May fundraising but have not yet released their figures. Redrawn congressional districts after the 2010 census heavily favor Republicans, and Democrats face long odds at ousting the GOP from the majority.

Even so, House Democrats have outraised their Republican rivals in 14 of the last 16 months.
