OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe has reported raising more than $786,000 during the third quarter and has more than $1.5 million in the bank.

U.S. House and Senate candidates are required to file their quarterly reports on receipts and expenditures before midnight Tuesday, although reports are not viewable online because of the partial government shutdown. The reports cover the three-month period from July 1 to Sept. 30.

The 78-year-old Inhofe announced in August that he planned to seek a fourth term in office. He is recovering from emergency heart surgery performed earlier this month.

He is being challenged by 32-year-old Democrat Matt Silverstein, an investment planner and political newcomer from Bixby. Silverstein's campaign didn't immediately respond to a request for their quarterly report.
