COLUMBIA — Incumbent South Carolina U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham has $7.6 million in the bank for his re-election campaign this year while fellow Republican Tim Scott has about $3.1 million on hand.

The numbers come from their latest campaign disclosure reports filed with the Federal Election Commission.

Those reports show Graham raised $1.3 million in the fourth quarter of last year. That’s about three times as much as FEC records show his four announced opponents together have in the bank.

Scott raised about $433,000 during the last quarter of 2013. Scott was appointed in late 2012 by Gov. Nikki Haley to fill the U.S. Senate seat left vacant by the resignation of Jim DeMint. Scott is running his first statewide campaign to finish the last two years of DeMint’s term.
