(CHICAGO) Illinois Republican U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk’s campaign says he raised more than $1 million in the most recent quarter for his re-election bid against Democratic U.S. Rep. Tammy Duckworth.
It marks the fourth consecutive quarter that Duckworth has outraised Kirk. Her campaign said this week she raised $2.7 million between April and June.
Duckworth also has more cash in her campaign fund, with $5.5 million. Kirk’s campaign said Friday he finished the quarter with $3.12 million.
Kirk is considered one of the GOP’s most endangered incumbents heading into November’s election, when Democrats look to retake the Senate.
Kirk spokeswoman Eleni Demertzis says he has raised more than $10 million from almost 30,000 donors this election cycle. She says his “independent voice and thoughtful leadership have resonated” with people in Illinois.
