Republican Sen. Todd Young’s campaign reported Wednesday that he raised a record $1.6 million in the third quarter and has $5.6 million cash on hand.

The campaign said the amount was the largest raised in the third quarter during the off-year of a U.S. Senate campaign by an Indiana candidate. The record was previously held by former U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly, a Democrat who raised $1.4 million in an off-year quarter in 2017.

Young also broke a record during the second quarter when he reported a total of $2 million raised.

The $1.6 million comes from more than 10,000 donations, with 93% of those less than $100, according to Young’s campaign.

“I am incredibly grateful for the support from so many Hoosiers,” Young said in a written statement. “The fight has just begun, as President Joe Biden and the far-left seek an ally who will advance his liberal agenda, ignore the southern border crisis and push through a reckless $3.5 trillion tax and spending spree.”

On the Democratic side of the Senate race, Hammond Mayor Thomas McDermott leads the Democratic field with $82,130 raised. Democratic candidate Haneefah Khaaliq has raised $29,314 and Valerie McCray has $2,684.

The only other Republican candidate running for the seat so far, Danny Niederberger, has raised $2,150.

  1. If only our politicians would support campaign finance regulations and controls. Then this money could go to non-profits to support those in need. So much wasted money to put someone into a job they don’t do with any concern of the average citizen. A very sad situation. Finance reform and term limits are the only way to get out of this ridiculous political spiral.

  2. Mitch McConnell will fund the RINO to make sure he has a pocket vote as needed.

    Todd Young is not a conservative and should not represent Indiana Values.

    Freedom Index score for voting with the US Constitution 2021 67%, life time 51%.
