Florida Sen. Marco Rubio raised $12 million for his presidential bid in the second fundraising quarter.

Combined with the funds raised by outside groups supporting him, Rubio has hauled in almost $44 million for his White House run, putting him in third place in the GOP money race so far, after Jeb Bush (about $114 million) and Ted Cruz ($51 million.)

Rubio’s campaign said that he received donations from all 50 states -- as well as the District of Columbia, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands –- and that the median donation was $50.

His campaign has over $10.25 million cash on hand, it said Monday.
