Barletta Raised Nearly $1.3 Million in Q2
Another quarter, another million.
Rep. Lou Barletta’s campaign for Senate raised $1.28 million in the 2nd quarter, slightly higher than the previous quarter’s total of $1.26M. This is the second consecutive quarter that the Barletta campaign raised over $1 million.
Based on his report last quarter, his campaign spent over $1.3 million in the second quarter, leaving him with $1.56M cash on hand.
Barletta’s opponent, Sen. Bob Casey, released his 2Q totals earlier this week. Casey’s campaign also matched its previous quarters total by raising $2.2 million. The incumbent spent $2.3 million and has $9.8 million cash on hand.
Fundraising has been a constant question for Barletta, who is at a disadvantage versus an incumbent with a statewide network that spans decades. But help is on the way. Barletta has a fundraising event on the horizon: Vice President Mike Pence will visit the Union League in Philadelphia on July 23. This is Pence’s second visit to the city of Brotherly Love in as many months for fundraising purposes.
