FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Democrat Amy McGrath’s campaign says she has raised more than $3.6 million in the past three months in her effort to defeat Republican U.S. Rep. Andy Barr in Kentucky.

McGrath’s campaign said in a news release it raised $3.65 million from more than 32,000 donors in the past three months. McGrath has raised $6.65 million since she announced her candidacy last August. The campaign says it has $1.7 million in cash available to spend.

McGrath’s fundraising report was not available on the Federal Election Commission’s website. Barr’s report was also not available. A spokeswoman for Barr said his campaign will release the report after it is filed. It is due Oct. 15.

The race in Kentucky’s 6th Congressional District is one of the most closely watched campaigns in the country.
