FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Alison Lundergan Grimes raised more money than Mitch McConnell in the past three months, but the Democratic U.S. Senate candidate still trails the Senate Republican leader by a 2-to-1 margin in available funds.

Grimes' campaign manager Jonathan Hurst said the campaign raised $2.7 million in the first quarter of 2014. McConnell's campaign reported Tuesday it raised $2.4 million in the first quarter.

McConnell has $10.4 million available to spend while Grimes has nearly $5 million available. Overall, McConnell has raised more than $22 million in his bid to win a sixth term in the Senate while Grimes -- who started raising money last year -- has raised $7.3 million.

Republican primary challenger Matt Bevin's campaign says it raised $1.1 million in the first quarter but did not say how much is available to spend.
