Michelle Nunn, the Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate in Georgia, posted another huge fundraising quarter, hauling in nearly $3.5 million between April and June.

Nunn's campaign announced Tuesday that she pulled in more than $3.45 million during the second quarter, the Associated Press reported. Not only is that better than her Republican opponents, but it's expected to be one of the best totals for any Senate candidate in the country this quarter.

Nunn's campaign did not say how much money she had in her campaign account at the end of June. She had about $3.7 million on hand at the end of April.

Nunn, the daughter of former senator Sam Nunn (D) and the former head of the Points of Light Foundation, will face the winner of next week's Republican runoff between Rep. Jack Kingston and businessman David Perdue.
