PoliticsPA has learned that Petri raised $300,000 during the fourth quarter of 2015. His campaign also has $276K cash on hand.
The fourth fundraising quarter of 2015 spanned from October 1st to December 31st. The Petri camp filed with the FEC on Oct. 1st but didn’t formally announce their entry into the race until November 30th.
Petri has two Republican competitors in April’s PA-8 primary, Andrew Warren and Dean Malik. Recently, though, incumbent Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick’s brother has been making noise about a possible campaign.
The 8th District consists of all of Bucks County as well as part of upper Montgomery County.
