The National Republican Congressional Committee said Friday it raised $4.2 million in December and has $21 million banked for this year's elections.

The Democrats' committee to elect members to the House raised almost $76 million last year to fund its effort to retake the majority. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has $29.3 million in the bank.

The GOP enjoys a 32-seat advantage in the House, 232 Republicans to 200 Democrats. There are three open seats.
