U.S. Senator Bob Casey’s campaign announced it raised $2.2 million during the third quarter, and ended the quarter with $7 million cash on hand.
“Thanks to the incredible grassroots enthusiasm from across the Commonwealth, Senator Casey maintained his record-breaking fundraising pace for another quarter,” Casey’s Campaign Manager M.E. Smith said in a release.
According to the release, 88% of the donations were $100 or less. The campaign also points that the campaign has more cash on hand than it had during any of Casey’s previous election. In a race that is expected to likely be one of the most expensive in history, the ability of the campaigns to fundraise will be more important.
Casey’s cash on hand is nearly $6 million ahead of Congressman Lou Barletta (R-Luzerne) who announced his totals last week, but only entered the Senate race in late August, with one month remaining in the fundraising quarter.
