WASHINGTON — Democratic Senate candidate Rep. Tammy Duckworth D-Ill., in a battle with Sen. Mark Kirk, R-Ill., raised $4.1 million in the past three months and has $4.3 million on hand, her campaign said on Thursday.

The Duckworth campaign released the summary numbers ahead of the public release of the latest Federal Election Commission report covering August, September and October. The Kirk campaign said Thursday it was not releasing third quarter fundraising totals yet. The updated reports of Kirk and Duckworth will be available at fec.gov

“This was by far our campaign’s strongest quarter, and as we near the final weeks of the election, we are encouraged to see our grassroots supporter base continue to expand all across the state,” Duckworth campaign manager Kaitlin Fahey said in a statement.
