A super PAC that supports electing Democrats to the House announced a major fundraising haul for 2013 on Tuesday, more than double what it raised at the same point in its previous election cycle.
House Majority PAC said it raised $7.5 million in 2013. That’s more than double the $3 million it raised in the year preceding the last election cycle, in 2011.
In a statement announcing its record haul, the group said it would work to combat Republican allies’ spending.
“House Majority PAC is committed to combating the efforts of the Koch Brothers and their right-wing allies, who are already stepping up to spend unprecedented sums in House races to promote their reckless agenda,” the PAC’s communication’s director, Andy Stone, said in a statement, adding that Democrats will continue to be “aggressive” in responding.
The super PAC spent about $36 million over the course of the 2012 elections, boasting a success rate of 63 percent.
