Democratic U.S. Sen. Al Franken reported raising $2.1 million in fundraising during the last three months of 2013 for his re-election campaign, and has $4.8 million banked for the race.

Businessman Mike McFadden, one of Franken’s Republican challengers, raised $780,000 during the same period and has $1.7 million in cash on hand for his bid to unseat Franken.

The other Republicans in the race have yet to release their fourth quarter fundraising totals.

Franken’s campaign staff noted that the first-term senator had more than 34,000 individual donors in the last quarter including 13,300 new donors.
