FRANKFORT — The re-election campaign of Republican U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell has raised nearly $12 million, its campaign manager announced Monday night.

Jesse Benton said in a statement that McConnell will file a report with the Federal Election Commission later this week showing he has raised another $1.8 million since January and that he has about $8.6 million on hand.

Kentucky Republican Party Chairman Steve Robertson also said McConnell also raised more than $500,000 since January for the state GOP that will work to support his re-election next year.

McConnell had raised about $10 million for his re-election by the end of last year.

So far, McConnell doesn’t have a serious challenger. Actress Ashley Judd had considering running, but announced late last month that she had opted not to.
