Fundraising Report: Dubow Outraises Giordano in Superior Court Race

alice-beck-dubowThis November’s election, which will shape Pennsylvania’s judiciary for years to come, concerns three Supreme Court seats, a Commonwealth Court seat and finally a seat on the PA Superior Court.

Much as in the Commonwealth Court race, the Superior Court contest featured a competitive Democratic primary while the GOP rallied around their candidate early. After everything was settled, Philadelphia Judge Alice Beck Dubow emerged as the Democratic nominee and Northampton County Court of Common Pleas Judge Emil Giordano won the GOP nomination.

In the latest fundraising reports, which cover the period from June 19th to September 22nd, Dubow outraised Giordano but the cash on hand race is much closer.

The Democrat brought in $149,877 while the Republican raised $78,920.40.

Meanwhile, Dubow spent $85,297.53 whereas Giordano’s expenditures were about half that, $42,513.86. As a result, the former has $90,934.14 COH while the latter has $88,200.98.

One large caveat, though, is that Giordano has no debts or other obligations while Dubow has a massive $150,759 in unpaid dues.

The Dubow campaign (as well as the Wojcik campaign) argue that the fate of down-ballot races will be determined in large part by the Supreme Court contests. Since the Democratic nominees in that race have a huge fundraising lead, the Superior Court and Commonwealth Court candidates are confident of victory.

  1. Look at the expenses Dubow claimed – airline tickets (???), staff people, and other frivolous items. She is best kept away from the public. I met her at an event and was so unimpressed. She comes across very ditzy. Giordano isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed either, but Dubow makes him look like rocket scientist. He should challenge her to a debate. Wow, two unimpressive candidates for Superior Court.

  2. So it looks like Dubow’s debt is to herself and to someone who happens to share her maiden name. You might want to report on that, since it tells a different narrative that the one that you came up with.
