According to campaign finance documents for the second quarter of the year, Slotkin reported raising more than $1.5 million from April through the end of June, leaving her with more than $6.5 million in cash on hand.

Her anticipated opponent, Sen. Tom Barrett (R-Charlotte) raised $621,557, but ends the quarter with just $439,049 on hand.

Barrett has raised just under $1.4 million since the start of the election cycle while Slotkin has garnered nearly five times that amount at just over $6.8 million.
