U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand is reporting $10.5 million in her campaign account as she runs for re-election.
The Gillibrand campaign reported that it raised just over $2 million for the three-month period that ended June 30 in federal disclosure forms that were due Sunday. The New York Democrat is being challenged by Republican Wendy Long, whose filings weren’t immediately available.
The quarterly filings come a month after pre-primary filings that showed Gillibrand with a huge cash advantage over Long, who last month reported $112,397 in her campaign account.
Long, a New York City lawyer who has advocated for conservative judges, won a three-way Republican primary last month.
Gillibrand is running her second Senate campaign since she was appointed in 2009 to replace Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. In 2010, she won election to finish the last two years of Clinton’s term.
Gillibrand and Long are competing for a full six-year term.
Gillibrand campaign spokesman Glen Caplin said the senator is “proud to have the broad support of New Yorkers across the state.”
