The 2020 U.S. Senate race in Arizona is shaping up to be the most expensive in the nation.

According to Federal Election Commission data compiled by Axios, Arizona’s two likely opponents took the top two spots for second quarter fundraising. 

Democratic former astronaut Mark Kelly led the list, bringing in $4.2 million, while Republican Sen. Martha McSally reeled in $3.4 million.

The next-highest fundraiser was Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, who raised $3.1 million.
