Washington (AP) -- Republicans Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani have joined the Democratic presidential candidates in reporting unprecedented fundraising numbers.
Romney says he raised $23 million during the first quarter, while Giuliani reports his donations totaled $15 million.
Both numbers blew away previous GOP Presidential fundraising standards. Romney's figure puts the former Massachusetts governor in competition with Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton, who on Sunday reported raising $26 million during the first three months of this year.
Aides to Giuliani say he raised more than $10 million for the primaries during March alone.
