The RNC and the DNC are building their campaign coffers ahead of this year’s midterms, when the Democrats will be defending their razor-thin majorities in the House of Representatives and the Senate. The GOP needs a net gain of just one seat to recapture the majority in the 100-member Senate. Republicans need a net gain of five seats in the 435-member House of Representatives to win back the majority.
