Q3: Margolies Leads the Pack
Former Congresswoman Marjorie Margolies brought in more than $237,000 during July, August and September. The total was put her ahead of her three opponents in the Democratic primary to succeed Allyson Schwartz.
She had a great deal of support from her former colleagues and a $2,600 check from a notable in-law: former President Bill Clinton.
Singer Barbara Streisand also chipped in $1,000.
The downside to Margolies’ strong quarter? She spent almost all of the money – 86% – of what she brought in the door.
Much of her spending went to fundraising consultants, whom she paid over $50,000 in the quarter.
State Sen. Daylin Leach’s haul was smaller in Q3 than it was in the second quarter. He raised $172,000 and has $377,000 on hand – the second largest stockpile of the four candidates.
His campaign noted that his total number of donors, 1,845, puts him far ahead of his competitors and sets the table for additional fundraising success in the future.
Physician and activist Valerie Arkoosh netted the most of the four candidates. She raised $228,563.00 and has $588,212.00 on hand. These numbers come from her campaign as the report is not yet posted on the FEC’s website.
State Rep. Brendan Boyle raised $151,256.14 and has $308,103.58 on hand.
