Washington (CNN) – Once again, Mitt Romney's coming to the aid of fellow Republicans.
The former Massachusetts governor and probable 2012 GOP presidential candidate announced on Tuesday that Free and Strong America PAC, his political action committee, is contributing $15,000 each to the Republican National Committee, the National Republican Senatorial Committee and the National Republican Congressional Committee.
"President Obama and his big spending allies in Congress have confused priorities for our nation," says Romney in an email statement. "Instead of focusing on putting unemployed Americans back to work, they have raised taxes, expanded the size and scope of government and prolonged the recession. I believe that by electing Republicans, we will make America strong and prosperous again."
The $45,000 in new contributions brings to over $425,000 Romney's donated to GOP lawmakers and Republican party national and state committees this year.
Romney also was a big supporter of Republican candidates last year during the midterm elections. Such assistance could pay dividends later this year and next year if Romney, as expected, runs again for the White House.
Romney, who ran for the 2008 GOP presidential nomination, says he will decide later this year if he'll make another bid for the White House.
Romney's PAC raised nearly $1.9 million in the first quarter of this year.
