WASHINGTON (AP) - The head of House Democrats' campaign arm says online donors gave almost $5 million this week.

Rep. Steve Israel on Friday announced the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee raised $4.8 million for the week, a record for the group. That sum is almost as much as the campaign committee amasses in a typical month.

Republicans are expected to keep their House majority after November's elections. Re-drawn congressional districts favor the GOP and both parties are contesting only a handful of seats.

Even so, the donors have opened their wallets for Democrats and helped their campaign panel out-raise the Republican rival in 16 of the last 18 months.

Both parties' campaign committees have to disclose their July fundraising by Aug. 20.
