Casey Has $2.1 Mil Cash on Hand

By Keegan Gibson, Managing Editor

Senator Casey has a solid $2.1 million cash-on-hand, Colby Itkowitz of the Morning Call and Tom Fitzgerald of the Inquirer report.

He has more cash on hand than several other incumbent Senators, including  Claire McCaskill (D-MO), Olympia Snowe (R-ME) and Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Fitzgerald notes.

It’s the result of an impressive fundraising haul in the first quarter for Casey, $1.1 million, which the Casey campaign will submit to the FEC tomorrow.

Earlier previews of the race have listed Casey’s fundraising as a potential weakness for the Senator (one of a few), so this number is not likely to encourage Republicans considering a run in 2012.

The full FEC report is not available yet, but you can click here to see the several-dozen PACs that contributed to Casey. It includes the standard range for the Pennsylvania delegation and Democratic incumbents, including pharmaceutical companies, labor unions, farmers, medical associations, as well as General Electric.
