U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan’s re-election campaign gave an early look at how much money she raised in the second quarter of the year – $3.6 million, which the campaign says is the biggest amount ever raised in the second quarter of a North Carolina Senate race.
She also will report having $8.7 million cash on hand.
All congressional candidates have until Tuesday to file their campaign finance disclosures for the quarter with the Federal Election Commission.
“Kay’s record-setting second-quarter fundraising total is a reflection of the enthusiasm and momentum behind her campaign,” campaign spokesman Chris Hayden said in a statement.
“These funds will ensure that the campaign can reach voters from Murphy to Manteo to talk about Kay’s bipartisan and commonsense record of results for North Carolina’s middle-class families. Kay is committed to advocating for North Carolina’s service members and veterans, protecting Social Security and Medicare, and supporting our students, schools and teachers, and North Carolinians know that Kay will always put North Carolina first.”
