State Senator Daylin Leach announced today that his campaign for the 7th Congressional district raised $400,000 in the third quarter fundraising period.
“I am grateful for all of the support for our campaign. But this movement isn’t about us, it’s about so many people being fed up with the direction that our country is headed in,” Leach said in a release announcing the fundraising total.
According to the release, the campaign received contributions from 1,200 people. Leach’s campaign it touting that 71% of the contributions were of $200 or less, and 85% of donations were from within Pennsylvania.
These sorts of releases, especially this early in the campaign are often used to scare prospective candidates away from the race, and to earn gained media.
Democrats Andrew McGinty, Elizabeth Moro, Dan Muroff, Paul Perry, and Molly Sheehan are all also running to challenge Congressman Pat Meehan (R-Delaware).
