The House Majority PAC — which was launched in 2011 to help Democrats take back seats in the House — said Friday it has raised $12.9 million so far this cycle.

In its announcement, the super PAC said it raised $1 million in April and ended the month with $10 million in the bank — money that it hopes to leverage against Republicans running in tough districts, some of were made harder with Donald Trump at the top of the ticket.

“House Majority PAC continues forward into 2016 stronger than ever before,” said House Majority PAC Executive Director Alixandria Lapp said in a statement. “We will keep amassing resources to hold GOP congressional candidates accountable nationwide and secure wins for Democrats in districts across the country.”

In the 2014 cycle, the group said it raised and spent a total of $38 million to help Democrats compete in about a dozen races.
