The website opensecrets.org reports Congressman Kevin McCarthy (R) has raised $6.7 million for his re-election campaign for California's 23rd District.

The report says numbers are current as of June 30th and shows McCarthy has spent $5.7 million on the campaign and has almost $3 million cash on hand.

The website says $2.8 million has come from PAC contributions and $1.12 million from large contributions. Another $2.77 million was classified under "Other".

Goldman Sachs was listed as the top contributor with $72,800 given to the McCarthy campaign, according to the website. Microsoft Corp and Koch Industries are also listed as national companies that have contributed at least $20,000.

Grimmway Farms and Occidental Petroleum are companies with local ties that are noted as large contributors by the website. 

A spokesperson for McCarthy sent 23ABC this statement:

"As a leader in the House Republican Conference, McCarthy is proud of the support he receives locally, throughout the state, and across the country.  Much of these resources raised are used for his reelection campaign and to help ensure that House Republicans across the country have the resources they need to fight for a freer and more prosperous country through commonsense conservative solutions."   

McCarthy's opponent, Wendy Reed (D), has raised $30,097 for her campaign, according to the website. Reed has spent $20,494 and has $9,603 cash on hand.
