CNN — The Democratic group tasked with keeping the House majority announced Thursday that it raised more than $125 million in 2019, a record for the organization in a non-election year.
Rep. Cheri Bustos of Illinois, chairwoman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, noted that Democrats surpassed their 2017 total by about $20 million, helping fund a "cycle of engagement" that will allow them to protect dozens of battleground districts and go after Republicans across the country.
"We got to hang on to this majority because we know what's at stake in 2020," Bustos said. "We've got the resources to get the job done."
The National Republican Congressional Committee did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
