Mitt and Ann Romney are opening their personal checkbooks as wide as allowed to their presidential campaign's joint fund with the Republican National Committee.

Mitt and Ann Romney each gave $75,000 to the joint Victory Fund, which is working to set up offices in the states and build party infrastructure. CNN first reported the $150,000 transfer on Friday, and a Republican with knowledge of the contribution confirmed it to The Associated Press.

The Republican spoke on condition of anonymity because the campaign reports that would show the money are not yet public.

This is the first time Romney has given money to his second White House campaign. In his 2008 campaign for the GOP nomination, he poured more than $40 million of his own money into the effort.
