Mastriano Provides Financials

The final financial report for candidates running for Pennsylvania governor has been submitted by Republican Doug Mastriano.

The second-term state senator raised over $1 million last year while spending just over $215,000, leaving him with over $1.04 million in hand for the stretch run.

That figure puts him fourth among republican hopefuls for the governor’s mansion, trailing only Dave White ($2.48M), Jake Corman ($2.13M) and Jason Richey ($1.49M).

Democrat front-runner Josh Shapiro has a war chest approaching $13.5 million.

Mastriano, 57, amended an earlier financial disclosure in which he said he raised $363,000 last year.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that the unusual report — received by the Pennsylvania Department of State almost a week after the filing deadline — raises questions about Mastriano’s compliance with campaign finance laws. And it underscores Mastriano’s challenge of harnessing the grassroots energy powering his candidacy to build a professional operation even as he shuns consultants and big donors.

The initial report was 626 pages, while the revised report runs an eye-popping 865 pages. The campaign noted that most of his cash came from small-dollar donors.

“We are the only grassroots campaign in the governor’s race,” Mastriano said in a statement. “The hardworking people of Pennsylvania are sick of politics as usual and demanding new leadership to end the senseless mandates, to have parents to take charge of their children’s education, to restore voter integrity and to end punitive property taxes.”

  1. Someone tell Doug’s running mate Daniels to stop being a bragger and exaggerator. He’s doing posts now pretending he is in the same world as SEALS and Delta. He was regular army, not special ops, not special forces. He acts like he fought in Stalingrad with all his boasting. Doug isn’t a guy who should associate with that much arrogance.

    1. Doug is just as bad. He was a staff puke who never had a command and spent most of his career on the academic side.

  2. Did Melissa Hart raise enough $ to make her late house mortgage payment? No job. No money. No prospects.

  3. I’m troubled that the candidate demonstrates a leadership style of not properly nor timely disclosing information within the rules; not being able to articulate what they will actually do to change things; and think leadership is only trash talking a broad generalization of people. SlanderLying and being loud is not leadership by any registered R or D or I. We have enough of those folks already in office.

  4. The guy fundraiser on encouraging insurrection and lies. How much has he raised in the last 3 months from PENNSYLVANIA voters.

    Hes a lying scum bag.

  5. As the saying goes money talks and everything else walks. Mastriano is hot right now and those fundraising numbers back it up. People don’t donate to candidates they think are losers. He is looking good to get the nomination.

  6. Did they disclose how much money came from Putin? I know none came from Trump, because that cheap ass would swindle his own dead mother.

  7. I let a homeless volunteer live in the campaign office and then he moved in with me and my mom
