South Carolina Democrat Jaime Harrison has shattered congressional fundraising records, with his U.S. Senate campaign reporting he raised $57 million in the final quarter in the race against Republican incumbent Lindsey Graham. Harrison’s campaign said the total is the largest-ever during a single three-month period by any Senate candidate.
The $57 million beats Beto O’Rourke’s 2018 final funding period amount of $38 million when he was running against Republican Senator Ted Cruz. Graham hasn’t released fundraising totals for the previous quarter, although it’s likely he’s been eclipsed by Harrison.
Last month, Graham made a public plea for fundraising to help him keep up with Harrison.
