Together, they have raised $3,386,363.92 combined with $1,957,071.53 coming from political action committees (PACs).
Here is the breakdown of each candidate’s total raised, and the amount that came from PACs:
Fitzpatrick’s ranking was helped by his topping the list for PAC contributions as well. 67% of his fundraising came through PAC donations.
While Cartwright came in third in fundraising, his haul helped him jump up the rankings for cash on hand which will help him push back against national Republicans targeting his seat in 2018. His fundraising came mostly through individual donations, with only 27% coming from PACs.
Marino’s small amount could be partially attributed to his expected move into the Trump Administration, and to his margin of victory in the previous election.
