(CNN) - Former Republican Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney's political action committee announced its first wave of 2011 candidate contributions on Thursday, totaling $129,500, according to a press release.
Fourteen senators and 37 congressmen from states across the country will be on the receiving end of the donations. The largest single sum of $10,000 is to Massachusetts Republican Sen. Scott Brown who is up for re-election in 2012, followed by Senators John Barrasso of Wyoming, Bob Corker of Tennessee, Jon Kyl of Arizona and Roy Blunt of Missouri at $5,000. Barrasso, Corker and Kyl are up for re-election in 2012. Blunt, should he choose to run, would face voters again in 2016.
The other Republican candidates all received $2,500.
"We need to show our support for a Republican agenda that seeks to create jobs and reform, restructure and reduce the size of government," Romney said in a statement.
The failed 2008 presidential hopeful has yet to formally announce his intentions for the 2012 election, but his travel, fundraising and staff hires all point to a run.
Romney appeared Tuesday on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight" and said his wife has already made up her mind on whether he should run.
"My wife thinks I should run, she's absolutely committed," Romney said. "I'm not sure she knows whether I can win or lose, but I know she feels that somebody of my experience is needed in the country at a time like this."
