LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Democrat Amy McGrath continued her blistering fundraising pace in the spring.

She outdistanced Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for another quarter in their free-spending campaign in Kentucky.

Despite her prodigious pace, McGrath ended the quarter with slightly less money in the bank after spending heavily at the end of her bumpier-than-expected primary battle against state Rep. Charles Booker.

McGrath raised $17.4 million in the April-through-June period. The retired Marine combat pilot has raised $47 million since entering the race about a year ago.

McConnell raised $12.2 million in the most recent quarter, lifting his total to nearly $38 million for the campaign cycle.
