Inhofe's campaign released his financial report on Thursday that shows the Tulsa Republican had nearly $1.6 million in cash on hand at the end of the period, which covers campaign contributions and expenditures from Oct. 1 through Dec. 31.

The federal campaign finance reports are not due until midnight Friday, but Inhofe's campaign released the report early.

Inhofe reported total receipts of more than $3.5 million for the election cycle to date.

The 79-year-old Inhofe is Oklahoma's senior U.S. Senator and is seeking his fourth full six-year term in office. He's being challenged by Democrat Matt Silverstein of Bixby, a political newcomer.
