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 HaganBiden's gun control push poses danger for midterms The two women who could 'cancel' Trump 10 under-the-radar races to watch in November MORE (D-N.C.) and Al FrankenAlan (Al) Stuart FrankenMaher chides Democrats: We 'suck the fun out of everything' Why Caitlyn Jenner should not be dismissed #MeWho? The hypocritical silence of Kamala Harris MORE (D-Minn.), both of whom brought in around $2 million.

Others topping the $1 million mark include Sen. Mary LandrieuMary Loretta LandrieuCassidy wins reelection in Louisiana Bottom line A decade of making a difference: Senate Caucus on Foster Youth MORE (D-La.), who brought in $1.7 million, Sen. Mark WarnerMark Robert WarnerBiden signs executive order to improve federal cybersecurity Overnight Defense: Former Pentagon chief to testify about Capitol riot Wednesday | Senate Intelligence chairman wants Biden to review US Space Command move Wyden: Funding infrastructure with gas tax hike a 'big mistake' MORE (D-Va.), who raised $1.4 million, Sen.

Democratsic candidates making first-time Senate bids posted big numbers as well. Rep.

Sens. Mark BegichMark Peter BegichAlaska Senate race sees cash surge in final stretch Alaska group backing independent candidate appears linked to Democrats Sullivan wins Alaska Senate GOP primary MORE (D-Alaska) and Mark PryorMark Lunsford PryorBottom line Everybody wants Joe Manchin Cotton glides to reelection in Arkansas 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 ClintonObama calls on governments to 'do their part' in increasing global vaccine supply China's emissions now eclipse the developed world — preventing climate protection Trump endorses Glenn Youngkin in Virginia governors race 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.
