South Carolina Democrat Jaime Harrison has shattered congressional fundraising records, bringing in $57m in the final quarter for his US Senate campaign against Republican incumbent and Trump ally Lindsey Graham as the Republican party tries to retain control of the chamber in November’s election.

Harrison’s campaign said Sunday that the total was the largest-ever during a single three-month period by any Senate candidate.

That tops the $38m raised by Democrat Beto O’Rourke in 2018 in the final fundraising period of his challenge to Senator Ted Cruz, Republican of Texas, who won the race.

Graham, a longtime senator, is tied with Harrison in a highly competitive race.
