Virginia Republican Rep. Eric Cantor , the House minority whip, raised close to $1 million in this year’s first quarter. That made Cantor — the second-ranking member of the House Republican leadership — the most prolific early fundraiser among all House members as the 2010 election cycle got under way.

Cantor’s campaign report , filed with the Federal Election Commission by last midnight’s deadline, listed $964,000 in total receipts.  

Cantor raised $382,000 from individuals and $341,000 from political action committees (PACs) and also transferred $226,000 from Cantor Victory Fund , a joint fundraising committee that divides its proceeds among Cantor’s campaign committee and other Republican committees.
