The Romney campaign announced Friday that it raised $12.6 million in primary funds during the month of March and now has $10 million of cash on hand.

The Republican National Committee recently started coordinating with the Romney camp and brought in $13.8 million during the same period, the committee's best fundraising month since 2008.

However, Romney and the RNC still have a major fundraising task in front of them over the next six and a half months. President Obama and the DNC, by comparison, raised $53 million dollars in March and are sitting on $85 million dollars of cash on hand.

Romney has not tapped into his own vast personal wealth at all during this presidential cycle, whereas in 2008 he pitched in around $45 million.
