Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Thehill.com: “Graham hauls in record $3.9 million in fourth quarter”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Sen. Lindsey GrahamLindsey Olin GrahamRestlessness, light rule-breaking and milk spotted on Senate floor as impeachment trial rolls on Senator-jurors who may not be impartial? Remove them for cause Broad, bipartisan rebuke for proposal to pull troops from Africa MORE (R-S.C.) raised $3.9 million for his reelection campaign in the fourth quarter of 2019, a haul that his campaign said represents the largest single quarter fundraising haul in South Carolina history. 

The total eclipses the previous record that Graham set in the third quarter of 2019. During that time frame, Graham raised $3.3 million, more than any other Republican senator. 

The three-term senator's campaign has $10.3 million on hand as it moves into 2020. The total also represents the most a state or federal candidate has ever raised in South Carolina history, his campaign said. 

“We are floored by the record-breaking support from our grassroots army,” Graham campaign manager Scott Farmer said in a statement. “South Carolinians are incredibly grateful that Senator Graham is leading the fight to confirm a record number of conservative judges, to keep the U.S. economy booming, and to keep Americans safe by defeating our enemies abroad.”

The announcement comes just weeks after Graham's Democratic challenger announced another impressive fundraising haul in the fourth quarter. Jaime Harrison, a Democratic National Committee official and former chairman of the South Carolina Democratic Party, announced earlier this month that his campaign raised more than $3.5 million during the last three months of 2019.
