Dan Muroff, democratic candidate for Congress in the 7th district of PA, reported that his campaign raised $306,000 since entering the race, carrying forward $220,000 cash on hand at the end of the quarter. This is reportedly more than any other Democratic challenger facing the 7th district.
Dan Muroff was the former president of Conservation Voters of PA and Ceasefire PA.
“I am pleased at both the financial and grassroots support my campaign has received. Over the next several months I plan to speak to Democrats about my campaign, my progressive vision and how I’m the strongest democratic challenger ready to run a disciplined and focused campaign able to defeat Pat Meehan.”
Muroff calls Meehan out for claiming to be a moderate but choosing to side with Donald Trump over 86% of the time. Continuing on to promising to stand up to political bullies and Trump and helping his fellow Americans, Muroff is running a progressive campaign that is well funded.
Last week, state Senator Daylin Leach announced he had raised $400,000 in the third quarter. Democrats Andrew McGinty, Elizabeth Moro, Paul Perry, and Molly Sheehan are also running for the seat.
Update: An earlier version of this report stated Muroff had raised $306,000 in the third quarter. He has raised this amount since entering the race, including loans made to the campaign. In the third quarter Muroff raised $76,906.30.
