BOSTON (AP) — The fundraising race between three Republican candidates hoping to oust Democratic U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is picking up.

On Monday, state Rep. Geoff Diehl announced he’d raised $324,000 during the first three months of the year.

That’s more than two other Republican candidates — former Mitt Romney aide Beth Lindstrom, who said she raked in $303,000, and businessman John Kingston, who said he’d raised about $275,000.

Warren hasn’t said how much she’d raised during the first quarter. As of the beginning of the year, Warren had more than $14 million in her campaign account.

The three face a key test at the Massachusetts Republican State Convention on April 28 in Worcester, where candidates must win 15 percent of the delegates’ vote to get their name on the September primary ballot.
