Supreme Court: First Quarter Fundraising
Both Justice Sallie Mundy and Judge Dwayne Woodruff have clear paths through the primary, but will be facing off against each other in the general election for the one open seat on the Supreme Court. The end of the first quarter gives us our first insights into the fundraising efforts of each of the candidates.
Woodruff ended the first quarter with the advantage in cash on hand, ending the quarter with $282,203.36. That is the most of any candidate for statewide judicial office at this point. Mundy ended the quarter with $64,495.03 cash on hand.
Woodruff also raised more than any other candidate during the first quarter raising $327,300. $311,150 of that came from donations of over $250 from individuals. Mundy raised $58,349.99, most of which came from PAC and individual donations over $250. $57,999.99 of her donations came from that bracket.
Both candidates received the endorsements of their respective parties. Woodruff was endorsed by the Pennsylvania Democratic Party, and Mundy was endorsed by the PA GOP.
The two candidates are building their war chests for when they begin their outreach for the general election.
