The Republican National Committee (RNC) attracted $6.9 million in January, beating the Democratic National Committee DNC by 60 percent, according to government filings.

The DNC raised $4.3 million in January.

As of Jan. 31, the RNC had $7.1 million in the bank, compared to $4.6 million for the DNC, Politico reports.

And the Democrats ended the 2012 election cycle with $21.5 million of debt. It’s normal for a party to have a hefty debt level at the end of an election cycle. The RNC was weighed down with $23 million in debt at the end of the 2010 cycle. But those borrowings were all paid back by the end of last year.

“As we work to build and grow the party, we remain committed to spending our money wisely and are grateful to our donors and supporters,” RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said in a statement.

“Grassroots-level support was especially strong last month, and overall, we added more new donors to our rolls than we did in January of 2009. Our donor base is now larger this year than it was in 2011.”
