Republican U.S. Senate candidate Herschel Walker raised more than $12 million during the last three months, the former University of Georgia football star’s campaign reported Wednesday.

That’s less than half of the more than $26 million incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock raised during the third quarter. The Walker campaign boasted his haul during July, August, and September was the largest quarterly total for any Republican Senate candidate during this election cycle. Walker’s campaign reported Wednesday that the challenger had more than $7 million cash on hand as of the end of last month.

On Wednesday the Warnock campaign reported $13.7 million cash on hand as of Sept. 30.
