Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes has raised more money than Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell since July, banking $2.5 million as of Sept. 30.
McConnell reported last week that he had raised nearly $2.3 million since July, pushing his overall fundraising total to $17.7 million for the election cycle.
Campaign manager Jesse Benton said that was McConnell's strongest quarter yet.
McConnell, who had a long head start in raising money for his re-election, has nearly $10 million cash on hand. Hurst said Grimes has about $2 million cash on hand.
McConnell, already Kentucky's longest serving U.S. senator, is seeking re-election to a sixth term next year.
