McConnell, Bevin raise $3.5 million in 1st quarter

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Republican candidates for Kentucky's U.S. Senate seat raised a combined $3.5 million in the first three months of 2014.

U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell raised $2.4 million in what his campaign said was the most money the Republican leader has raised in his effort to win a sixth term in the United States Senate.

Matt Bevin, McConnell's Republican primary opponent, raised $1.1 million in the first quarter.

McConnell's campaign has $10.4 million left to spend of the $22.3 million they have raised this election cycle. Bevin's campaign declined to say how much money they have left to spend. Neither candidate's report is available yet on the Federal Election Commission's website.

The Republican primary is May 20.
