WASHINGTON, Aug. 22 (UPI) -- The Republican National Committee enters the final months of the U.S. midterm election campaign with just $5 million in its coffers, filings show.

The RNC disclosure came in an unannounced RNC filing Friday with the Federal Election Commission, Politico reported.

The filing showed the RNC raised slightly more than $5.5 million in July, less than half what the Democratic National Committee brought in, and spent $11 million.

The RNC, led by Chairman Michael Steele, had more than $2 million in debt.

Other GOP committees are doing better raising money, Politico said.

The National Republican Congressional Committee, for example, outraised the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, $8.5 million to $6.2 million, in July.
