AUSTIN (October 8, 2013)--U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, raised $1.8 million this quarter and now has $6.9 million in campaign cash on-hand, Campaign Manager Brendan Steinhauser confirmed to The Associated Press Tuesday.

The totals reflect Cornyn’s war chest through Sept. 30.

Cornyn is minority whip, making him the Senate's No. 2 Republican.

His latest haul is down from the $2.3 million his campaign raised during the second quarter through June.

He is seeking re-election next year, but has yet to draw a major GOP primary challenger and no Democrats have declared for the race.

On Monday, the campaign began what Steinhauser called a "substantial TV and radio campaign" targeting primary and general election voters.

He said the television component alone would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.
