Republican U.S. Rep. Andy Barr's campaign raised $1.35 million last year, including $275,000 in the fourth quarter.

Barr, who is up for re-election this year in Central Kentucky's 6th Congressional District, finished the year with about $900,000 in cash on hand, up from the $781,000 he posted at the end of the third quarter in 2013.

Barr's full fundraising report, which isn't due until the end of the month, was not yet available from the Federal Election Commission. The top-line numbers were provided by his campaign.

Barr continues to enjoy a significant financial advantage over his closest Democratic challenger, Elisabeth Jensen.

Jensen raised $325,000 in 2013, including $100,000 in the fourth quarter. Jensen also lent her campaign $100,000. She has about $245,000 in cash on hand.
