The National Republican Senatorial Committee raised nearly $3.2 million in March, according to a source in the committee.
The committee ended last month with almost $5.3 million in the bank.
This is a jump from February, when the committee raised $2.2 million and had $3.1 million in cash on hand. The NRSC will report $9.5 million in debt.
The NRSC, which is chaired by Sen. Jerry Moran of Kansas, got a late start on hiring this cycle, so the improvement is attributable to getting staff in place.
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee did not have its fundraising numbers available Friday. Monthly fundraising reports are due to the Federal Election Commission by midnight Saturday.
Correction, 6:15 pm | An earlier post misidentified the amount of debt the NRSC reported based on inaccurate information provided by the source.
