The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has raised $20 million in online contributions — more than it did during all of 2015, the most recent comparable year, NBC News reported.

The DCCC, which is the campaign arm of House Democrats, had brought in $19.7 million in 2015, the last off-year ahead of an election.

"The unusual fundraising haul is the latest sign that President Donald Trump is motivating Democrats in extraordinary ways as the party looks to win back the 24 seats it needs to retake the House of Representatives in next year's midterm elections and put Rep. Nancy Pelosi back in the Speaker's chair," wrote Alex Seitz-Wald of NBC News.

DCCC officials say 2 million people jointed its grassroots email lists since early January, including 156,000 new donors, according to NBC News.

"The DCCC is actively building the largest battleground in a decade, and that's a testament to the grassroots energy that we're witnessing every day, in every corner of America," said DCCC Spokesman Tyler Law. "Our record smashing grassroots, online fundraising haul is further evidence that House Democrats are on offense while Republicans are in a full meltdown."

House Republicans have also shattered their own fundraising efforts, according to The Hill.

The National Republican Congressional Committee reported it has raised $10 million in April, breaking its record for their fourth straight month.
