A powerful political action committee aimed at claiming the House for Democrats in 2014 is touting a major fundraising haul for 2013.

The House Majority PAC announced Tuesday that it raised $7.5 million for Democrats in 2013. The amount the committee raised in 2013 was more than double than what they raised in 2011, prior to the 2012 election cycle.

House Majority PAC Communications Director Andy Stone said in a statement that the group is working hard to combat the fundraising efforts of conservative billionaires Charles and David Koch. The brothers spent about $16 million on television ads in the fall of 2013 in an effort to make the Affordable Care act a dominate issue in the 2014 midterm elections, according to CNN.

Stone said that the committee expects the Koch Brothers “and their right-wing allies” plan to “spend unprecedented sums in House races to promote their reckless agenda.” In response, Democrats will remain aggressive and respond “in a big way.”
