The good news continues to pile up for Republicans on the fundraising front. At least 33 House Democrats in closely contested races received less in donations than their GOP opponents from Oct. 1 to Oct. 13, Politico reports. It didn’t publish the combined total raised by each party in the 33 districts.

In some districts, the Republican fundraising advantage was sizable. GOP challenger Kristi Noem attracted $215,000 more than South Dakota Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin, and Florida Republican candidate Dan Webster drew $194,000 more than Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson (pictured).

Republican candidate Steven Palazzo received $63,000 more than Mississippi Rep. Gene Taylor.
