      Graham raises $1.1M in 3 months, has $7M on hand

      COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham raised more than $1.1 million in the third quarter of 2013.

      The figure released Tuesday means that the Republican has nearly $7 million in the bank. His campaign says that's the most that it is ever recorded.

      Graham raised a total of $1.17 million from July 1 through Sept. 30 and spent more than $533,000.

      Graham is facing three opponents who all say he is not conservative enough. Only one has filed a fundraising report. Richard Cash raised almost $15,000 in the third quarter and spent $22,000. His current bank balance was not listed.

      Nancy Mace and state Sen. Lee Bright are also challenging Graham.
