The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has reportedly racked up $18 million in debt following this year's midterm elections. 

The committee mostly focuses on House races. The DCCC reportedly raised $272 million this year, but even with all that money, it spent heavily attempting to flip as many House seats from red to blue as possible.   

But The New York Times reports this kind of debt isn't new for the DCCC, which it says has had at least $10 million in debt after every election cycle in the last decade. The organization was reportedly more than $19 million in the hole after the 2010 midterm elections. 

The 2018 midterms were the most expensive in history, with more than $5 billion spent overall.
