ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Sen. Tina Smith says she’s raised $1.84 million for her Senate campaign in the first quarter.

It was Smith’s first full quarter of fundraising since she was appointed in December after Sen. Al Franken resigned over sexual misconduct allegations.

Smith, a Democrat who was appointed by Gov. Mark Dayton after serving as Dayton’s lieutenant governor, is running in November’s special election to complete his term through 2020.

Smith’s campaign touted contributions from more than 16,000 donors, but didn’t release cash on hand or provide other details. Full reports aren’t due until Sunday.

Republican Karin Housley hasn’t yet filed her first-quarter report.
