Two House Republican campaign groups aligned with Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., raised a combined $66 million in 2017 as they look to keep the GOP in control, The Hill reports.

The Congressional Leadership Fund (CLF) had raised less than $500,000 in the last off-year, the website noted. However, it hauled in $26 million in 2017. The affiliated American Action Network (AAN) pulled in $40 million, according to the Hill.

"CLF's record-setting off-year fundraising is a testament to Speaker Ryan's leadership and House Republicans' conservative agenda," CLF and AAN Executive Director Corry Bliss said.

"Knowing history is against us, CLF's field program has laid the groundwork to protect the Republican House majority well ahead of Election Day, opening 27 field offices and making over 5 million voter contacts to date. AAN is well-prepared to continue to promote the conservative policies of House leadership, and CLF is ready to ensure Republicans maintain the majority in 2018."

The Republican National Committee was on track to raise $130 million in 2017, The Washington Times reported late last month.
