South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint raised $699,000 in the first three months of the year and ended March with $2.2 million cash on hand, his campaign disclosed Thursday.

But the first-term Republican incumbent, who is up for re-election in 2010, is not resting. His campaign also announced a roster of six finance co-chairmen, which he deemed the “‘Dream Team’ of Palmetto State fundraisers.” Among them are former Ambassador to Canada and former Speaker of the state House, David Wilkins and former state Republican party chairman and Spartanburg financial adviser Barry Wynn.
