Bartos Reports $849k at Year End for LG Bid

Republican Lieutenant Governor candidate Jeff Bartos, who is running as a ticket with state Senator Scott Wagner, reportedly finished 2017 with $849,000 on hand.

“Throughout all of 2017, voters have been rallying behind our team’s conservative agenda that will restore hope and opportunity for all Pennsylvanians – and this year-end filing proves it,” Bartos said in a release.  

Bartos originally was running for U.S. Senate until he teamed up with Gubernatorial candidate state Sen. Scott Wagner to run for Lieutenant Governor.  

“After I decided to join the Scott Wagner for Governor team as the Lieutenant Governor candidate in November, Scott and I knew how critical it was that we maintained our momentum and continued spreading our pro-growth message all across the Commonwealth,” Bartos said.  

Bartos loaned $500,000 to his Lieutenant Governor campaign. His campaign said he has “always maintained that his race will be properly funded, and his $500k loan reflects that commitment.”

According to FEC filings, Bartos loaned $550,000 and donated $28,353 to his Senate campaign and had $1,025,930 cash on hand.  

Update: Bartos’ campaign transferred $213,500 from the Senate campaign to the Lieutenant Governor campaign.

  1. Former Political Prisoner in Pa says:

    Whatever it takes, Pa is in dire need of fixing particularly It’s judiciary where democractic Judges at what appears to be all rungs continue to abuse & misuse their Authority making the ENTIRE Bench stink. It is high time someone step up to the bat ridding Pa of DECADES of corrupt democratic rule powered by the tainted Bench for starters! Here is where a Domino effect will occur, with first cleaning up the Pennsylvania’s judiciary! Beginning with review of “tainted” Office of Disciplinary Actions such as:

    No. 1280 Disciplinary Docket No. 3

    No. 158 DB 2005

    Attorney Registration No. 46044 (Montgomery County)

    Respondent, MARYANN F SWIFT who suffered a judicial TRAMPLING for attempting to expose a “THUG” of a Judge Smith & his cronies in the higher Court. Yes, clean up the Bench and Pennsylvania will FLOURISH

    $500K loan is a funny way to have $849K cash on hand.

    We need to find a better way to report this and eliminate loans from Cash-on-Hand, because it’s really a Debt.

    1. PhillyPolitico says:

      Well if it’s anything it’s a net-zero. But the reality is most candidates who make a substantial loan don’t expect to get the money back if they lose, or that they’ll make it up over the long-term if them win.

      So it *is* cash the campaign can spend, and cash they never truly *have* to pay back.
