Mitch McConnell Just Had His Best Fundraising Quarter Ever

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell flexed his fundraising strength in the midst of a global pandemic, raising nearly $7.5 million in the first three months of 2020, his campaign said Tuesday.

The first-quarter haul was the Kentucky Republican’s best three-month fundraising performance since entering the Senate in the mid-1980s.

“Kentuckians know that at a time of great consequence, there is no substitute for the proven leadership of Mitch McConnell,” the senator’s campaign manager, Kevin Golden, said.

McConnell, who is seeking his seventh term, has raised $25.6 million so far for the 2020 election cycle, and he had nearly $14.9 million on hand in what shapes up as a big-spending Senate race in Kentucky.

Democrat Amy McGrath has also shown her campaign fundraising prowess, attracting money nationwide from Democrats wanting to see McConnell ousted. McGrath is by far the best-funded of several Democrats vying to challenge McConnell in November.

McConnell has outpaced his 2014 fundraising, when he had nearly $10.4 million on hand at the same point in his last reelection campaign.

McConnell’s campaign signaled that it won’t ease up on the fundraising pedal in the coming months.

“The enthusiasm from across the Bluegrass State to uphold our conservative values and reelect Senator McConnell will only grow as Election Day approaches,” Golden said.
