The Congressional Leadership Fund super PAC, an outside spending group that supports Republicans in the House, said it raised $4.6 million in the second quarter of 2016, according to The Wall Street Journal
"Donors understand how important it is to have a functioning majority in the House that is as large as it is," fund president Mike Shields said.
House leadership endorsed the group when it was founded in 2011. The group said $4.6 million was a record for the group's second quarter fundraising. In 2014, it only raised $600,000 during that period.
House Speaker Paul Ryan's agenda and policies have helped bring in money that will support Republicans.
The PAC's donors might also come from the ranks of Republican supporters who are wary of supporting likely presidential candidate Donald Trump, but want to help save Republican majorities in the House and Senate.
The Journal reported that a group supporting Democrats in the House have seen more recent success by bringing in $12 million.
report noted more groups are engaging in bipartisan support, by giving to both Republican and Democrat political action committees.
