HONOLULU (AP) - Sen. Brian Schatz raised more than $900,000 during the most recent quarter for his campaign to retain the senate seat he was appointed to in December.

The senator raised over $1.1 million in the January-March period. The campaign said Tuesday he's raised more than $2 million altogether.

U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa hasn't yet released fundraising figures for the April to June quarter. Hanabusa announced her candidacy for the senate seat in May.

Gov. Neil Abercrombie appointed Schatz to fill the vacancy created by Sen. Daniel Inouye's death even though it was Inouye's dying wish to have Hanabusa succeed him. Schatz was lieutenant governor at the time.

The Schatz campaign says 73% more individuals donated compared to January-March. The campaign has also received money from other senators' political action committees.
