Mitt Romney's fundraising has taken a significant upturn since he all but locked up the GOP nomination.
Unnamed Romney supporters tell The Hill that Romney pulled in more than $3 million in two fundraisers in Florda, and their joint fundraising contract with the Republican National Committee will go a long way toward filling his coffers.
Romney and the RNC have a joint fundraising goal of $800 million.
"This all started when we signed the contract with the RNC — that's when the general election really began for us," the fundraiser said. "There's a lot of enthusiasm out there — I can in a week's time raise $1 million for an event."
Romney's schedule is very heavy on fundraising appearances the next month, and if he continues to bring in $1 million or more at most stops he could quickly close the gap with obama in campaign money. Romney finished March with a bit more than $10 million in the bank after having to spend heavily in the primary, while Obama had $104 million cash on hand.
