Democratic Senate nominee Jaime Harrison raised $57 million in the third quarter of the year, breaking all records from previous Senate candidates.

The amount Harrison raised gives him a financial edge over GOP opponent Sen. Lindsay Graham (R).

According to Advertising Analytics, Harrison also out-spent Graham in television and digital advertising. The Democrat spent an estimated $52 million while Graham only used $19 million for ads.
