The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) is a political committee devoted to increasing the number of Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives.
The NRCC’s origins date back to 1866, when the Republican caucuses of the House and Senate formed a “Congressional Committee.” Today, the NRCC is organized under Section 527 of the Internal Revenue Code. It supports the election of Republicans to the House through direct financial contributions to candidates and Republican Party organizations; technical and research assistance to Republican candidates and Party organizations; voter registration, education and turnout programs; and other Party-building activities.
While the primary sources of funding for the DCCC are labor union and trial lawyers’ interest groups and Democratic Members of Congress, the NRCC relies most heavily on individuals from all walks of life who contribute $25, $35 or $50 per year.
