Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell has raised nearly $12 million so far for his re-election bid, giving him an enormous head start over any potential Democratic challengers.

Campaign manager Jesse Benton said McConnell will file a report with the Federal Election Commission later this week showing he has raised another $1.8 million since January and that he has about $8.6 million on hand. Republican Party of Kentucky Chairman Steve Robertson said McConnell also raised more than $500,000 since January for the state GOP that will work to support his re-election.

McConnell had raised about $10 million for his re-election by the end of last year.

So far McConnell doesn't have a serious challenger. Actress Ashley Judd had considering running, but announced late last month that she had opted not to.
