South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott is amassing an impressive war chest for next year's election — having raised $1.1 million in his first three months in office.

Scott, whom Gov. Nikki Haley appointed to replace former Sen. Jim DeMint in January, kicked off his fundraising as he gets ready to face voters for the first time in 2014.

Notable donors include former presidential candidate Herman Cain and former Sen. Phil Gramm, who each gave $2,600, and former Rep. Bob Livingston, who gave $500.

Of Scott's donation total, $678,000 came from individuals and $432,000 came from political action committees, GreenvilleOnline.com reports.

"I am extremely grateful to the people of South Carolina for their support," Scott said in a statement.

"This was a great first quarter, and shows the people of our state stand behind a strong, conservative voice."

So far, nobody has stepped forward to challenge Scott in the 2014 Republican primary.

Scott, 47, made history as the first African-American senator from South Carolina. He's also the first African American senator from the South since 1881.
