The Republican National Committee raised $17.8 million last month, marking the group's best off-cycle March fundraising effort.

The group raise a total $44.4 million in the first quarter of 2021, another fundraising record, according to figures obtained by Fox News and reported Tuesday.

"Every dollar we raise is a stand against Biden and Congressional Democrats' serial record of failure in office," RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said. "Our supporters' generous contributions allow us to pursue our mission, which includes promoting an America-first agenda."

The RNC raised $16.3 million in January and $10.4 million in February. The group said 84% of the money raised in March came from small-dollar donations, $200 or less.
