  Republican U.S. Sen. Roy Blunt says he has more than $3.8 million on hand for a 2016 re-election campaign. That's more than three times as much as his Democratic challenger, Secretary of State Jason Kander.

The Republican senator from Missouri said Tuesday that he raised more than $1.3 million during the previous three months.

Kander said Tuesday he raised about $735,000 during the past quarter and has about $1.1 million in his campaign account.

Blunt first was elected in 2010 after serving 14 years in the U.S. House. He previously served as secretary of state from 1985-1993.
