(CNN) – The Republican National Committee said Wednesday it brought in $25.2 million in first-quarter fundraising, highlighting that it's the first party committee to top $100 million this election cycle.
The group said it raised $10.2 million in March alone, pushing its 2014 total to $105.9 million, with $12.3 million cash on hand.
Chairman Reince Priebus said the fundraising success comes in part from an "outpouring of support" after last month's Republican win in a Florida special election.
He added that contributions will further the party's success into November's midterm elections.
“The momentum is on the Republican side because Republicans are on the side of the American people. Voters are frustrated with Obamacare and angry about the Democrat politicians who lied to them about it. They’re worried about job security and their paychecks, and Republicans are the only ones offering solutions," Priebus said in a statement.
“Unlike the DNC, we’re on a strong financial footing, so we will have the resources to connect with voters - especially voters who haven’t heard from us in a long time - to share a solutions-based message and to listen to their concerns as we head toward November.”
Through February, the Democratic National Committee raised nearly $79 million this cycle. While behind the RNC's pace this year, the DNC touts that it has outraised its GOP rival in three out of the past four months.
And the DNC highlighted that it brought in nearly $2.5 million online last month, with more than $500,000 raised on March 31 alone.
