Houlahan Raises $840K in Q2
No incumbent? No problem.
In the first full fundraising quarter since incumbent Rep. Ryan Costello dropped out of the 6th district race, Democratic congressional candidate Chrissy Houlahan announced that she raised more than $840,000. That’s slightly higher than her Q1 haul. She added to her cash on hand by finishing the 2nd quarter with more than $2.2 million.
“Our campaign momentum keeps growing, with new faces showing up every week ready to go out and tell not just my story, but the story of working Pennsylvania families taking back our government and sending proven common-sense leadership back to our nation’s capital,” she said.
Houlahan highlighted that the average individual contribution was $16.34, with 97.5% of the donations being less than $100. Houlahan entered the 2nd quarter with $1.6 million cash on hand and raised over $740,000 in the 1st quarter of the year.
Republican hopeful Greg McCauley’s campaign has not posted its 2nd quarter earnings yet. As of April 25, he had just $54,000 cash on hand.
McCauley’s first weeks on the campaign were tumultuous, with GOP leaders in SEPA and DC scrambling to determine a course of action in the wake of Rep. Costello’s surprise retirement announcement. Since then, Republicans have coalesced around McCauley’s candidacy. The NRCC designated him as a Young Gun in May.
