Campaign officials said most of the amount–$1.3 million-came in the 33 days since Harrison announced his bid, according to published reports. The average contribution was $26.

The 43-year-old Harrison is a Democrat from Orangeburg, S.C.

Graham’s camp reported he raised $2 million during the quarter. Final figures are not yet available. He also has a war chest of more than $4 million.

U.S. Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina

Harrison earned a law degree from Georgetown University, and he served as chair of the South Carolina Democratic Party from 2013 to 2017.

If he should win, South Carolina, known as The Palmetto State, would be the only state with two black men representing the state in U.S. Senate.

U.S. Sen. Tim Scott, a Republican, has represented South Carolina since 2013. Graham has served South Carolina since 2003.
