McConnell Raises Another $2.2M for Re-Election Campaign

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell raised $2.2 million in the second quarter, growing his 2014 campaign war chest to $9.6 million, the Washington Examiner reports.

The Kentucky Republican raised another "substantial" amount for the state GOP, with much of that earmarked to support McConnell's own re-election effort. McConnell had raised $15.4 million for the election cycle through June 30, putting the Kentuckian ahead of the torrid fundraising pace he set during his 2008 campaign, when he raised $21 million.

Think about all the crony paybacks McConnell will have to deliver on, that this money raising signals.
