Bloom Announces $200k on Hand to End 2017

State Rep. Steve Bloom announced he carried over $200,000 from 2017 after raising $252,000 during the year for his bid to replace Congressman Lou Barletta in the 11th Congressional district.

“I am truly humbled and inspired by the outpouring of contributions to our campaign by supporters in 2017. I am thankful for every single person who donated, from the largest to the smallest amount,” Bloom said in a release announcing the totals.  

Bloom is touting that he has not borrowed any money for his campaign, or loaned any money to his campaign.  

“I believe in leading by example, and that’s why I am running a debt-free, fiscally responsible campaign that only spends within its means,” Bloom said.  

According to FEC filings from earlier this year, Bloom had not loaned any money to the campaign, and the campaign had not taken out any loans.  

Businessman Andrew Lewis, former state Revenue Secretary Dan Meuser, former Federal prosecutor Joe Peters, and former RNC delegate Andrew Shecktor are all also running for the seat.

    The only way this haul would be impressive was if it was for a state senate seat. Lets not sit here and act like 252k is a lot of money for a congressional race that deals with two major media markets. He blew his load and probably maxed out every one of his donors on the contribution limits.

      Well he doesn’t have to raise the most. I mean no one is going to outraise musser. Its about establishing who will be the non mussercandidate right? So either Peters or Bloom are gonna be the non establishment choice. Peters just got in so he’s raised nothing.

    If he wants to run for Congress he should ditch the cheap Van Husen dress shirt

      This is exactly why you liberals will continue to lose. You live in a bubble with expensive clothes and Hollywood philosophy. Guy where’s regular clothes and you think that means your better then he is. Liberal smugness never ceases to amaze me.

        You paint with a very, very broad brush.

    Honestly that’s a decent haul. It’s early still and the number seems small compared to mussers millions of dollars, but any other congressional campaign for a non incumbent that would be a senseible amount of money.

    Steve is a man of the PEOPLE and a man of GOD! He will MAGA in DC!

    Insufficient funding for a multi-county Congressional election

    1. MultipleCounties says:

      Proof this person doesn’t know what they are talking about. They think counties have something to do with the amount of money you need to run a campaign ( because the single county of Philadelphia is so cheap to run in). Multiple media markets maybe? Either way, way ahead of joe peters, behind dan mueser, means he’s middle of the pack.

    So Steve raised 140k? Why can’t you just say that?
