The National Republican Senatorial Committee raised more money last month than any other month in the cycle as the GOP continues its push to take control of the Senate next year.

According to Politico, the NRSC raised $6.35 million in March and now has $15.9 million cash on hand with zero debt.

"Another record month shows that we are building momentum and that Republicans across the country are highly energized," Ohio Sen. Rob Portman, the NRSC's fundraising chairman, told GOP colleagues on Tuesday.

"Thanks to the strong financial support of thousands of people and my GOP colleagues, great candidates across the map, and an optimistic agenda, Republicans are one step closer to bringing back the Senate this fall, but there is still work to be done," Portman said.
In total, the NRSC raised $16.45 million during the first quarter of 2014.

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has not yet announced its March figures, but it is expected that ongoing fundraising by President Barack Obama will have given them a boost.

The DSCC raised $6.8 million in February and outraised the NRSC by $16 million last year, according to Politico, after a malaise set-in among Republican donors after the defeats in 2012.

Republicans need a net gain of six seats in the midterm elections to regain control of the Senate, and a number of pundits say it is a realistic possibility.
