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.

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.
