Thursday morning, Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate Mandela Barnes announced that he had raised more than $2.1 million in the second quarter of the year. In April, Barnes finished with $1.6 million cash on hand and raised nearly $1.7 million in the first three months of the year. Barnes’ campaign did not reveal how much he had spent during the period or how much he had in the bank to end June, but did reveal he has now raised $6.1 million since getting into the race.

With federal campaign finance reports due July 15, no other top Senate campaigns have released their fundraising numbers yet. In the last filing period, Sen. Ron Johnson raised more than $5.9 million, not including money brought in through his leadership PAC. Barnes’ democratic primary opponents Alex Lasry and Sarah Godlewski reported $3.9 million and $2.1 million in receipts for the first three months of the year.
