WASHINGTON (AP) -- Senate Democrats' campaign arm again outraised its Republican rival, the two committees said Friday.

Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee reported that it raised $7.2 million in June. The National Republican Senatorial Committee, meanwhile, said it raised $6 million.

The Democrats have now outraised Republicans in 16 of the last 18 months this election cycle. Combined, the two major committees have raised almost $167 million and have spent $117 million on ads, polling and consultants.

Democrats are defending a six-seat majority in the Senate and have been spending heavily to hold those seats and perhaps oust incumbent Republicans. The GOP has also been spend-happy with aggressive criticism of endangered Democratic incumbents in North Carolina, Louisiana and Colorado.

Senate Democrats have $30.5 million in the bank to Republicans' $24.6 million.
