WASHINGTON (AP) - The Republicans' committee to elect senators raised $36.6 million last year and has more than $8 million in the bank to challenge Democrats, who have the majority.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee on Friday also announced it had raised $4 million in December and has no debt.

The Democrats' committee to elect senators says it raised $52.6 million last year and has more than $12 million in the bank to defend its majority. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee also announced it has $3.75 million in debt, meaning both parties are about on par with money available to send to candidates.

Thirty-five Senate seats are up this year and Democrats will be defending 21 of them. Republicans need a net gain of six seats to wrest the Senate from Democrats' control.
