Nancy Mace, the first female graduate of the Citadel and a Charleston PR executive, has raised $400,000 so far in her campaign to unseat U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham.

Mace raised $385,000 in 2013 from more than 5,000 contributors and reached $400,000 with contributions so far this year, according to an email sent from her campaign.

Mace's spokeswoman Marissa Lynch said Wednesday the campaign does not yet have a cash-on-hand total.

Campaign finance reports for federal candidates are due Friday.

Mace is one of four Republicans running against Graham in June's primary. State Sen. Lee Bright, R-Spartanburg, Easley businessman Richard Cash, and Orangeburg attorney Bill Connor also are running.
