ST. PAUL, Minn. — Republican U.S. Senate candidate Mike McFadden has raised $1.1 million in the last three months to finance his run against Democratic Sen. Al Franken.

McFadden's campaign says its second quarter haul — its largest since McFadden entered the race last year — buoyed his war chest to more than $2 million. McFadden launched his first statewide ad campaign last week starring the candidate as a football coach.

The campaign released its quarterly fundraising figures in a news release Thursday. A filing with the Federal Election Commission was not yet available.

McFadden and retiring state Rep. Jim Abeler are running in a primary to challenge Franken.

Campaigns for Abeler and Franken have not yet publicly announced their fundraising totals.
