The front-runner in the GOP primary, Rep. Connie Mack (R-Fla.), raised a million dollars in the same period. Nelson hasn't released his totals but had $8.5 million saved up as of the end of 2011.

• Former Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-Mich.) raised $700,000 and did not announce his total cash on hand, a big dip from the nearly $1 million he brought in last quarter.

HOUSE

• Joseph Kennedy III, the son of former Rep. Joseph Kennedy II (D-Mass.) and grandson of former Sen. Robert Kennedy (D-N.Y.), topped $1.3 million in his first quarter in the race to replace retiring Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.). Kennedy’s haul makes him one of the top House performers — especially for a newcomer.

• Rep. David Rivera (R-Fla.) raised barely $100,000, a number that is sure to spark Republican concerns about his reelection prospects amid ongoing ethics issues. Rivera has almost $180,000 on hand, but his campaign also owes vendors and consultants more than $150,000.

• Rep. Daniel Webster (R-Fla.) raised less than $150,000 and was badly outraised by Democrat Val Demings, who brought in $330,000 during the same quarter. Webster has almost $400,000 on hand, compared to about $485,000 for Demings.
