on

Amy McGrath, who is leading Democrats in Kentucky’s nomination for challenging the Senate, has now outraised the state’s incumbent Senator Mitch McConnell (R).

According to The Hill, “McGrath’s campaign reported in a filing with the Federal Election Commission that it raised $11.3 million from April 1-June 3 and currently has $19.3 million in the bank. McConnell’s campaign reported hauling in $7.2 million in the same time period and is sitting on $15.4 million.”

The state will be holding its primaries on June 23 where the official Republican and Democratic nominees will be chosen.

“Amy has beat Mitch’s funding from deep-pocket special interests with donations from Kentuckians in all 120 counties and an average donation of $37,” McGrath’s campaign said in a statement Friday. “She’s built a grassroots team from the ground up that is capable of going toe-to-toe with Mitch in the fall.”
