The Georgia Republican Party is leading its Democratic counterpart in the presidential money dash, revealing Thursday it had raised nearly $90,000 in April.

According to the group’s April fundraising report filed Wednesday with the Federal Elections Commission (FEC), the state party had brought in $88,527.72. Its reported cash on hand stands little north of three-quarters of a million while, at $751,985.77, with no outstanding debts at the close of the reporting period.

The Georgia Democratic Party, whose treasurer resigned last week amid grassroots dissatisfaction over anemic fundraising, has yet to release their April figures. But it’s widely expected to track with previous reports wherein disbursements exceeded receipts.

The party’s last report laid bare the party’s dire financial situation. It claimed only $57,000 in cash on hand while outstanding obligations registered at more than $35,000.

Republican Mitt Romney also posted strong April fundraising figures, reporting more than $40 million for the month.
