WASHINGTON — The Republican National Committee raised more than $9 million in September as the party prepares to challenge President Barack Obama next year.
The RNC ended the month with $11.4 million in the bank. RNC Chairman Reince Priebus has focused on reducing the party's large debt since he took over from former chairman Michael Steele in January.
RNC officials say the party's debt is now $14.5 million, down from about $24 million when Priebus started as chairman.
The Democratic National Committee has not yet released fundraising totals for last month.
