Washington (CNN) - It appears March was a very good month for the Democratic National Committee.
The DNC reported Tuesday that it raised $13.5 million last month and nearly $30 million in the first quarter of the year. The DNC said it has $14.7 million cash on hand, with debt of $3.4 million.
A Democratic source told CNN that the committee experienced increased activity in the weeks after congressional passage of the Democrats' health care reform bill, and pointed out that the fundraising totals are the biggest month and quarter for the DNC in non-presidential year since the passage of the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law in 2002.
Earlier this month, a Democratic source told CNN the DNC had raised at least $13 million. The DNC's counterpart, the RNC, reported raising $11.4 million last month, while having $11.3 million in the bank and no debt.
