Exclusive: Costello Raises $340K in First Quarter

Ryan CostelloRepresentative Ryan Costello (R-Chester) announced he raised $340,000 in the first quarter of 2017.  Costello ended the first quarter with $513,000 cash on hand.  

“Congressman Costello is grateful for and encouraged by the strong support he is receiving from across the district,” Vincent Galko, Senior Adviser to the Costello campaign said in an email to PoliticsPA.  

The early boost to fundraising will help Costello’s efforts to ward off a primary challenger, and to push off challenges from Democrats.  Costello is one of the four seats in Pennsylvania targeted by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee for 2018.

“We are pleased with the quarter especially when you consider that we haven’t activated our fundraising and reelection organization yet,” Galko said.

    It will take a lot of money in his gerrymandered district to pretend he is a “moderate” as he continues to vote like Trump’s lapdog.

    I think the quotes are the “exclusive” part.

  3. Guest says:

    I like how the title begins “Exclusive”, as if campaign finance information isn’t readily available to the public.

    When did he have time to attend to his legislative job?
