This Montgomery County Republican seeking the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate has raised over $1 million for the second consecutive quarter.
“We are building a movement from the ground up, and this second strong fundraising quarter shows the excitement of everyday Pennsylvanians across all corners of the Commonwealth,” continued Bartos, “Our campaign is proving each and every day that we will raise the resources necessary to bring the fight to whichever radical Democrat is on the ballot in November of 2022.”
Another million-dollar-plus quarter in the books. Now, back to work.https://t.co/QbmNq9scDK

The press release from Bartos’ campaign did not mention how much he spent from the beginning of April to the end of June and how much cash on hand his campaign had entering the beginning of July.
Bartos, who joined the race on March 8, raised slightly under $1.2 million in the first quarter. However, of the nearly $1.2 million raised last quarter, $400,000 of it was from a loan he gave to his campaign.
Bartos spent $65,000 in the first quarter and entered April with $1.1 million cash on hand. His $1.2 million Q1 haul is more than any other GOP candidate that quarter.
Bartos is currently the lone GOP candidate to announce his Q2 haul.
Several other Republicans are also in the race to succeed outgoing Sen. Pat Toomey.
Kathy Barnette, a veteran and conservative commentator who was the GOP nominee for Pennsylvania’s 4th Congressional District in 2020; Sean Gale, an attorney; Sean Parnell, a combat veteran and author who was the GOP nominee for the 17th Congressional District in 2020; Carla Sands, former U.S. Ambassador to Denmark during President Donald Trump’s administration; Everett Stern, a businessman and HSBC whistleblower, have all formally declared their intentions for the GOP nomination.
According to the FEC, Craig Snyder, a political consultant and former chief of staff to Sen. Arlen Specter, James Edward Hayes, John Debellis, Martin Rosenfeld, and Robert Jeffries have also filed statements of candidacy.
