Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Dan Sullivan has reported raising $1.3 million during the first quarter of 2014.

That's comparable to the amount he brought in during the prior quarter, his first quarter in the race.

Sullivan is one of three high-profile candidates vying for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Democrat Mark Begich. The others are Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell and Joe Miller.

Begich, who is seeking re-election, reported his best fundraising quarter of this election cycle, with more than $1 million brought in between January and March. He reported having $2.8 million on hand at the end of the quarter.

Sullivan's campaign reported having just under $2 million on hand as of March 31.
