Senate Democrats kept up their brisk fundraising pace in the second quarter, putting themselves in a strong financial position as they head into 2014.

Several Democrats facing potentially tough reelection battles have raised more than $1 million in the last three months.

They include Sens. Kay HaganKay Ruthven HaganWarning signs flash for Tillis in North Carolina Tillis trails Democratic challenger by 7 points in North Carolina poll North Carolina businessman will challenge Tillis in GOP primary MORE (D-N.C.) and Al FrankenAlan (Al) Stuart FrankenTake Trump literally and seriously in Minnesota Ninth woman accuses Al Franken of inappropriate contact Al Franken to host SiriusXM radio show MORE (D-Minn.), both of whom brought in around $2 million.

Kay Hagan joins lobby firm MORE (D-Ark.), two of the GOP’s top targets along with Landrieu and Hagan, have yet to report their fundraising totals.

Campaigns often delay reporting their quarterly fundraising numbers if they’re not very strong, but Begich waited until the last minute in the first three months of 2013, and still raised a respectable $950,000. 

It would be surprising if Pryor matches the $2 million haul he managed last quarter, as that was aided by a $1 million fundraiser with former President Bill ClintonWilliam (Bill) Jefferson ClintonCNN: Biden likened Clinton impeachment to 'partisan lynching' in 1998 Trump 'lynching' comparison draws backlash from lawmakers House Democrat pledges 'there will be open hearings' in impeachment inquiry MORE.

The other candidates’ quarters put them in solid financial shape. 

Landrieu now has $4.9 million in the bank, while Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) has $3.2 million cash on hand after a strong $1.1 million quarter. 

Franken now has $3 million in the bank — money that will come in handy, as his most likely opponent, businessman Mike McFadden (R), raised $700,000 in the first month of the campaign alone.

Some Republicans posted strong numbers as well. 

But in many states they’re starting off in a big hole against the Democrats they hope to topple.

Iowa’s crowded GOP field has recently developed, and none of the candidates have had a full quarter to fundraise at this point.
