The campaign of Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes announced fundraising numbers Tuesday, showing Grimes with more than $4 million in contributions raised in the second quarter of 2014.

The contribution haul brings Grimes’ campaign up to $6.2 million in cash-on-hand. The campaign has already raised nearly $11.3 million in the election cycle.

The top-line numbers were sent out to reporters on Tuesday afternoon by the campaign, the full reports were not yet available through the Federal Election Commission’s website.

Grimes’ campaign said that over 100,000 of the donations coming into the campaign were from donors giving less than $50 — which they contend shows middle-class momentum.

“Kentuckians are coming together to invest in our campaign because they recognize that Alison Lundergan Grimes will bring a new generation of leadership to the U.S. Senate,” Grimes campaign manager Jonathan Hurst said. “As Mitch McConnell turns to his Washington special interest allies to bankroll his campaign, our grassroots campaign is driven by our supporters in all of Kentucky’s 120 counties.”

Grimes has brought in big-name Democrats during the quarter fundraising with U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Massachusetts, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, in Washington.
