Rep. Michele Bachmann raked in $2.2 million over the first three months of 2011 according to Fox News, giving her a huge war chest as she prepares to launch a rumored presidential bid.

Bachmann raised a staggering $1.7 million through her Congressional campaign committee, and an additional $500,000 through her political action committee, MichelePAC. The money raised through her reelection campaign fund can be transfered over to pay for a White House bid.The third term congresswoman is known as an incredible fundraiser. In the last election cycle, she brought in $13.5 million, more than any other Congressional candidate.

And the $2.2 million Bachmann has raised so far this year puts her ahead of a potential GOP presidential primary rival, Mitt Romney. Romney raised $1.8 million over the first 90 days of 2011through his Free and Strong America PAC.
