FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell has banked nearly $2.3 million since July, pushing his overall fundraising total to $17.7 million for the election cycle. Campaign manager Jesse Benton said Friday the numbers reflect the Kentucky senator's strongest quarter to date for fundraising. McConnell is facing challenges from Democratic front-runner Alison Lundergan Grimes. He also has a primary opponent, Louisville businessman Matt Bevin. They haven't yet released their fundraising totals. McConnell's campaign said that he received contributions from about 6,000 donors. McConnell is seeking re-election next year to a sixth term.
