PITTSBURGH: Democratic gubernatorial nominee Dan Onorato’s campaign announced that it has raised more than $5 million since winning the four-way Democratic primary on May 18. Overall, the campaign has raised more than $16 million.
“As we approach November 2, the enthusiasm and support for Dan Onorato’s candidacy continues to grow,” said Onorato campaign manager Kevin Kinross. “The more voters hear our message, the more they recognize that Dan Onorato is the only candidate with the experience and the plan to reform Harrisburg, turn our economy around and create jobs for Pennsylvania families.
