Democratic U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet is keeping up his strong fundraising during his re-election bid.

Bennet’s campaign reported Monday that the Colorado senator raised $2.7 million in the second quarter of 2016 and had nearly $6.1 million in cash.

Darryl Glenn won last month’s state Republican primary to challenge Bennet. Updated fundraising totals weren’t immediately available for Glenn, an El Paso County commissioner.

Glenn’s campaign reported about $50,000 cash on hand on June 8. But that didn’t include substantial contributions from the Senate Conservatives Fund and other donations after Glenn was endorsed by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and others.

Quarterly campaign finance reports for the race are due July 15.
