Former Marine Corps pilot Amy McGrath’s 2020 U.S. Senate campaign said it raised $10.7 million in its first three months of fundraising, a whopping sum that allows her to compete financially with her potential Republican opponent, U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell.
“Mitch McConnell has never faced an opponent like Amy McGrath,” said Mark Nickolas, McGrath’s campaign manager. “Not only does a new independent poll show the race tied, but more than a quarter-million grassroots donations — from all 120 Kentucky counties — have provided us a record-shattering first quarter of nearly $11 million to take down McConnell and his self-serving special interest allies. Change is coming.”
McGrath’s total is still less than the $11 million McConnell, a prolific fundraiser, has raised for his reelection bid so far. His campaign has not yet released how much he raised in the quarter and reports are not due until Oct. 15.
In the first week of her campaign, McGrath had already raised $5 million.
