March came in like a lion for Charlie Crist.

He pretty much tied Governor Rick Scott in campaign fundraising.

Both candidates collecting just over 1-and-a-half million dollars in March.

But even though the former governor is closing the fundraising gap, Charlie Crist says he'll never match Scott's money.

Crist may be closing the financial gap, but his party is still way behind.

The Florida GOP collected five times what the Democrats took in during the first quarter.
