EXCLUSIVE: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has raised more than $ 1 million since the Kentucky polls closed Tuesday night, Fox News was told.
More than 26,000 donations came, totaling more than $ 1 million, with an average contribution of $ 38, an assistant said.
“While Kentucky Democrats cannot decide on a candidate, there is undeniable momentum and support across Kentucky to re-elect Senator McConnell,” said Kate Cooksey, press secretary for the campaign. “The Mitch team is proud of our great primary victory and looks forward to another victory in November against any Socialists that the Democrats present.”

As of Wednesday, Navy fighter pilot Amy McGrath retained the lead to face McConnell in November for progressive opponent Charles Booker, but the ballots are still counted.
McGrath, backed by the establishment, led Booker by more than 8 points with about half of the reported votes.

McGrath has steadily garnered attention since he announced his candidacy last year, and McConnell has launched an ad campaign against him in recent months. McConnell’s team accuses her of having a “far left” record on issues such as the impeachment of President Trump, the border wall and abortion.
