Washington (CNN) - A pro-GOP independent super PAC co-founded by Karl Rove says it has raised nearly $100 million so far this campaign cycle.
An official for American Crossroads confirms to CNN that the super PAC and its nonprofit affiliate Crossroads GPS combined brought in $99.8 million since the start of 2011, with $49 million of the haul raised just in the past three months.

The group says that American Crossroads has $24.4 million cash on hand as of the end of March.
"There was a prevailing sense that the GOP primary would dampen fundraising for outside groups like Crossroads, but our supporters are as engaged as ever, and focused on stopping Obama's policies and defeating him at the polls," Crossroads communications director Jonathan Collegio told CNN.
Crossroads, which supports Republican candidates and causes, will most likely play a large role in helping the GOP ticket, especially in the next few months as the campaign of presumptive presidential nominee Mitt Romney concentrates on fundraising for the general election. Earlier this month the group went up with both TV commercials and radio ads that were critical of President Barack Obama.
Crossroads campaign cash figures were first reported by Politico.
