COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — U.S. Rep. Nancy Mace says she’s raised more than any other South Carolina House candidate in 2022.

Mace told The Associated Press on Wednesday that she has raised a total of nearly $2.5 million for next year’s reelection.

That includes about $950,000 in the third fundraising quarter, which ended last month, an amount that eclipsed each of her two previous quarters this year.

Mace is seeking to maintain the GOP’s hold on a district that has changed party hands twice in as many election cycles.

In November, she defeated Democratic Rep. Joe Cunningham and became the first Republican woman elected to represent South Carolina in Congress.
