Donors have given $33 million to the Republican Governors Association since New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie took the helm late last year.

The committee to elect GOP governors on Thursday announced it raised $23.5 million during the first three months of the year. That sum more than doubles the $9.1 million raised at this point in 2010, the last time there were 36 gubernatorial races.

The governors' committee has almost $60 million in the bank, almost double what the group had at this point in 2010.

Christie has been dogged by questions over a New Jersey bridge closing last year. But the scandal seems to have had little impact on Christie's ability to raise money.

The Democratic Governors Association is expected to release its fundraising totals in the coming days.
