The National Republican Senatorial Committee took in more than $23 million in the first quarter of 2021, the group’s chairman, Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., announced on Tuesday in a statement.

The NRSC raised over $8.3 million in March and more than $6.4 million in February. The group also paid the rest of its debt, which amounted to about $5.4 million, to end the first quarter with a total of $12.3 million on-hand, according to a recent filing with the Federal Election Commission. The group outraised its previous first quarter totals in 2017 and 2019.

“We’re combining a robust digital fundraising operation with a national network of bundlers who are committed to helping us raise money and win back the Senate,” Scott said in a statement.

“I’m honored to have my friends” Texas Rangers owner Tom Hicks, the group’s national finance chair, former ambassador Ronald Gidwitz, national finance co-chair, and Darlene Jordan, the Florida finance chair, “leading this effort to bring common-sense back to Washington and kick [New York Democratic Senate Majority Leader] Chuck Schumer out of his office.”

The NRSC recently came under fire for giving the inaugural Champion for Freedom award to former President Donald Trump last weekend.

"This weekend I was proud to recognize President Donald Trump with the inaugural @NRSC Champion for Freedom Award. President Trump fought for American workers, secured the border, and protected our constitutional rights," Scott wrote in a tweet following a GOP event on Saturday, where Trump was presented with the award.

Tim Miller, the former political director for Republican Voters Against Trump, said on Twitter: "The NRSC made up a new award, bought a down market brass bowl from World Market and presented it to Donald Trump this weekend as if he were the winner of a c-list pro-am golf tournament."

The Washington Post conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin added, “what a disgusting joke.”

Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, the former GOP presidential nominee told reporters that the decision to present Trump with an award was “Not my call.”

He added, “They’re certainly free to do whatever they’d like to do. As you know, having voted twice to remove him from office, that would not have been my preference.”
