KENTUCKY SENATE-FUNDRAISING
Grimes, McConnell break state fundraising records; raise combined $7.1 million in 3 months

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Tuesday, July 15, 2014 3:31 PM EDT
FRANKFORT, Ky.


Kentucky's two U.S. Senate candidates shattered state fundraising records over the past three months, bringing in a combined haul of more than $7 million.

Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes got the most money, raising more than $4 million compared with Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell's $3.1 million. But Grimes still trails McConnell in total cash. McConnell has $9.8 million in the bank compared with Grimes' $6.2 million.

McConnell has raised more than $25 million this election cycle. Grimes - who announced her campaign last year - has raised a total of $11.2 million.

The previous Kentucky Senate record for most money raised in one quarter was the $2.9 million McConnell raised in 2008, according to data from the Federal Election Commission's website.

The election is Nov. 4.
