Preparing the war chest for his 2024 congressional run, Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (R-01) will be reporting that his campaign raised over $685,000 in the first quarter of this year.
The Bucks County Republican has amassed more than $1.9 million as of March 31. The $685,000 quarterly figure dwarfs the totals that his campaign reported in each of the quarters during the 2022 campaign.
In the 118th Congress, Fitzpatrick sits on the Ways and Means Committee and House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. In addition, he co-chairs the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus and Congressional Ukraine Caucus, while also serving on the Bipartisan Addiction and Mental Health Task Force and NATO Parliamentary Assembly.
“Congressman Fitzpatrick continues to receive unprecedented financial and political support from a broad cross-section of our community and our nation, from Republicans, Democrats and Independents across the entirety of the political spectrum, from both individuals and organizations,” said spokeswoman Nancy McCarty. “This includes unprecedented levels of support of our labor community, our environmental community, our animal protection community, our school safety community, our first responder community, our national security community, our small business community, and good government reform organizations across America. To anyone who wishes to challenge him, now or in the future, we wish them well.”
Fitzpatrick, who represents Bucks and Montgomery County, is in his fourth term in Washington. Since edging Democratic challenger Scott Wallace by less than three percentage points in 2018, he has won reelection by 10 or more points in the last two elections in 2020 and 2022.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) has placed Fitzpatrick’s 1st Congressional District on its Districts In Play list and is launching nominee fund pages to allow grassroots donors to contribute to the eventual Democratic nominee in these Districts In Play.
Democrat Ashley Ehasz, whom Fitzpatrick defeated in 2022 by 31,000 votes and 10 percentage points, has announced her intention to challenge the incumbent again in 2024. She recently stated that her campaign raised $100,000 in the first week after her announcement.
