PA-Gov: Wolf Campaign Raised 13.27 Mil
Exceeding the fundraising numbers the campaign released in December, the Wolf campaign revealed that they raised $13.27 million.
In the middle of last month, the campaign boasted raising $2.9 million in addition to the $10 million that the Wolfs contributed themselves.
By the end of the year, approximately $3,270,000 came in contributions, $10,002,250 in contributions from Tom and Frances Wolf, making a $13,270,000 total in 2013 contributions.
“The campaign raised $3.27 million in 2013, and we have the momentum to keep growing our base of supporters in 2014. It is clear that his unique experience and background is resonating with Pennsylvanians,” said Joe Shafer, Wolf’s campaign manager. “Wolf is a successful businessman who has done things the right way – sharing 20 to 30 percent of his profits with employees, rejecting perks when he was the Secretary of Revenue, and saving his family’s business by investing in people.”
These numbers are still unofficial as campaign finance reports have not yet been released and these numbers come directly from the campaign.
Last week, Allyson Schwartz gave a preview of her 2013 fundraising as well. She reported raising $6.5 million for her bid, $3 million coming from a transfer from her congressional fundraising account.
Former DEP Secretary Katie McGinty is rumored to have raised between $2-2.5 million.
Also in the race for the Democratic nomination are State Treasurer Rob McCord, Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski, former DEP Secretary John Hanger, Lebanon County Commissioner Jo Ellen Litz and Cumberland County minister Max Myers.
