WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Democrats' campaign arm has almost $32 million ready to help endangered incumbents defend their narrow majority.

Party officials said Tuesday the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee collected almost $8 million last month and is ready to spend the bulk of its money to turn back Republican challengers. The Democratic organization has now raised almost $104 million and has spent $73 million for the fall campaign.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee earlier said it raised more than $5 million last month and has almost $27 million to help candidates. Fundraising summaries show Republicans with $76 million raised and $53 million spent, outpacing 2010 and 2012 efforts.

Yet even with improved fundraising, the GOP has been out-raised in 17 of the past 19 months.
