Barletta Raises $1.26 Million in First Quarter

Congressman Lou Barletta Senate campaign increased his fundraising totals and cash on hand in the first quarter of 2018, beating his fundraising from the last quarter of 2017.  

Barletta’s campaign raised $1,262,000 during the quarter, beating the $950,966 he raised in the last quarter of 2017. 

“This was our biggest fundraising quarter yet, and we are excited by the momentum that is building behind Lou’s campaign,” Barletta’s campaign manager Cody Jones said.  

Barletta ended the quarter with $1,633,000 on hand, netting $600,000 from last quarter.  

The campaign pushed its number of contributors and the amount of small dollar donors.  The campaign reported that they received 17,000 donations with 93% of donations under $100.  

“Voters are seeing the clear contrast between Bob Casey’s liberal progressive agenda and Lou Barletta’s record of fighting for Pennsylvania families. While Senator Casey has been focused on raising money for his statewide campaigns for the past 22 years, Lou Barletta has been getting results for the people he represents,” Jones said.

    CASEY has my vote and appreciation. Donating as we speak. Xo

    Casey has $10 million on hand.

    I love translating these:

    “Voters are seeing the clear contrast between Bob Casey’s liberal progressive agenda and Lou Barletta’s record of fighting for Pennsylvania families.”

    Yes. Casey is much more popular.

    “While Senator Casey has been focused on raising money for his statewide campaigns for the past 22 years, Lou Barletta has been getting results for the people he represents.”

    The money kind of resets each election cycle, when you spend it all. State campaign money can’t be shifted to federal, so 22 years makes no sense, especially considering that Casey keeps getting elected.

    The problem is that Barletta doesn’t represent the voters, only the special interests on K-street

  3. PA Voter says:

    PA GOP gets what it deserves by allowing this guy to walk in and take the Senate nomination. 2016 isn’t going to be like 2018 in Pennsylvania, and the hardcore Trump voters will not go out of their way to get to the polls and vote for Barletta.

  4. Same Old Same Old says:

    Republican big donors gotta spend their cash somewhere. Why not with Losing Lou? Trump’s lawyer’s office getting raided by the authorities takes some glimmer off of the Trump brand and Lou being so tied to Trump at a time like this with little and I mean VERY little crossover appeal to Dems makes his candidacy the political version of the Titanic. Weak top of the R ticket and bad news for Congressional down ballot races. Really bad news.

      You should just use your real name, Jim Christiana

  5. Guest says:

    Good for him. He’ll have a nice sum of cash on hand leftover after he loses by 12 points.
