Money played a large role in helping Republicans to victory in last year’s election. And House Speaker John Boehner wants to make sure GOP candidates have plenty of dough around for next year’s elections too.

Boehner urged freshman members to raise a lot of money during the first quarter in a private meeting Tuesday at GOP campaign headquarters, Roll Call reports.
 
Boehner told the 87 first-timers he will closely examine their March 31 filings with the Federal Election Commission to make sure they’re raising a lot of cash.
 
“I know you’re also being asked to raise funds for the dinner, but your campaign accounts in the first and second quarter go a long way in determining your opposition,” Boehner told members, according to a GOP aide with knowledge of the speech.
