WASHINGTON --  Carly Fiorina's presidential campaign announced Tuesday that it raised $6.8 million in the third quarter of 2015, a respectable haul for a candidate polling in the middle of the crowded field.

The campaign of the former Hewlett-Packard CEO also said it spent $2.2 million in the same period and ended the quarter with $5.5 million in cash on hand.

Interestingly, Fiorina actually brought in more fundraising dollars than Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who raised roughly $6 million in the third quarter. Rubio's haul is worrying for a candidate considered one of the front-runners for the GOP nomination. However, his campaign says it expects the pace to pick up next quarter, which it will start with $11 million in cash on hand.

One reason Fiorina is doing so well may be that her campaign has largely outsourced some of its costly functions to a super PAC supporting her run for president, a maneuver that has alarmed campaign finance watchdogs. 

The fundraising numbers are not yet final, however. The campaign is still required to file its fundraising report with the Federal Election Commission by Oct. 15.
