It didn’t match her first quarter fundraising haul, but the $1.5 million New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand raised over the past three months isn’t too shabby.

The Democrat boasted in an e-mail to supporters Wednesday that she has now raised a total of $3.8 million to defend her Senate seat in 2010. More details, including cash on hand, will be revealed in Gillibrand’s fundraising report, which is due to be filed today, in paper, with the Federal Election Commission. Gillibrand had $2.2 million in the bank at the end of March.

The New York Daily News is reporting that likely primary rival Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney raised $577,000 during the second quarter and had $1.7 million cash on hand as of June 30.
