The National Republican Congressional Committee got an infusion of cash last month that is likely going to get Democrats worried about their chances of maintaining a majority in the house after the midterm elections.

Fox News reported that the NRCC’s haul for the month of May was a whopping $14 million, though $5 million did come from the Republican National Committee. This makes the total for the NRCC $42.1 million, more than double the amount it had at the end of the last election cycle.

With only five seats needed to give Republicans a majority in the House, the odds are increasingly stacking against Democrats.

But the DCCC edged out the NRCC in April fundraising – $12.2 million to $11.2 million – and reported having $32 million cash on hand with no debt at the beginning of May.

The threat against the Democrats has been mounting as time goes on and Biden fails to accomplish much of anything.

On top of that, Democrats have backed the divisive and racist Critical Race Theory, an issue that many across America have turned their attention to and have begun fighting back on. This isn’t even mentioning the Democrat’s continued friendliness toward the “defund the police” movement that has caused many to turn against the left, including some Sheriff’s defecting from the Democrats to join Republicans.

It’s clear that Republican voters are motivated to retake the House, but we’ll see how motivated
