The Republican National Committee raised nearly $3 million more than the Democrat National Committee in the month of August.

The RNC raised $7.3 million in the month of August, while the DNC raised only $4.35 million, according to FEC filings. This gives the RNC a total of $45.8 million cash on hand, while the DNC has only $6.8 million.

In addition, the RNC owes $0 in debt, while the DNC now owes slightly above $4 million in debt. (RELATED: The Democratic National Committee Is Spending More Than It’s Taking In)

“The Republican Party continues to thrive because of steady support from the American people,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement. “We are thankful for individuals across the country who have expressed confidence in us to support President Trump and defend Republican majorities in Congress.”

The DNC, on the other hand, does not continue to thrive.

In an interview with NBC’s Hallie Jackson, DNC Chairman Tom Perez admitted in June that the party needs to rebuild after some of the worst months of fundraising in recent memory.  (RELATED: Democrats’ Fundraising Falls While RNC Donations Skyrockets)
