SCOTTSDALE, Arizona - Mitt Romney raised nearly $12.6 million for his primary battle in March, his campaign announced on Friday, in a sign of the Republican front-runner's growing strength toward winning the party's presidential nomination.

In addition, Romney has nearly $10.1 million cash in hand as he seeks to wrap up the nomination and focus on raising money for a difficult fight to unseat Democratic President Barack Obama in the Nov. 6 election.

The $12.6 million figure, the best fund-raising month of his campaign, came at a time when Romney was still facing stiff competition from his last big conservative challenger, Rick Santorum, who has since dropped out of the race.

The amount was a sign of Romney's increasing momentum toward the nomination. In the last 12 months, his campaign raised $87 million in primary funds.
