The Democratic Governors Association announced Friday that it raised $15 million in the first six months of 2013, a record for an off-year.

According to Politico,
the sum is 30 percent more than the committee raised in the first half of 2009, the last comparable period, when it posted $11.6 million in contributions.

"With these resources, the DGA is well-positioned to help take back statehouses that belong firmly in Democratic hands," Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlinthe, who heads the DGA, said in a statement.

"As we recruit strong candidates and build the infrastructure needed to win across the country, we will continue to communicate that in order to put an end to tea party-style governance in America, it's critical we elect more Democratic governors."

Republicans dominate most state governments across the country, holding down 30 governorships to the Democrats' 20.

The Republican Governors Association has not yet released its first-half 2013 fundraising figures, Polico reported.
