PA-12: McClelland Outraises Hugya in April

Erin McClelland

Erin McClelland and John Hugya are engaged in a close, hard-fought fundraising battle as Election Day nears.

Businesswoman McClelland bested her rival in the Democratic primary by just over $4,500 yet Col. Hugya has a slight cash on hand advantage.

Erin McClelland brought in $16,385 during the month of April. Her only PAC donation came from IPAL who chipped in $2,500. The campaign spent $26,233 over that period with almost a quarter of that money, $6,039, going to the Bulldog Finance Group for consulting and fundraising fees. Currently, the McClelland campaign has $21,770 cash on hand.

John Hugya, meanwhile, raised $11,800 in April. He also only received one donation from a PAC, $1,000 from the North Side Good Government Committee. His campaign only spent $10,189 over the course of the month, the most being the mere $954 that were used on signs from Richland Printing & Engraving.

As a result of low spending, though, Hugya edged out McClelland in cash on hand with $22,052.

McClelland and Hugya are battling to take on incumbent GOP Congressman Keith Rothfus.

  1. @observer Right? So they write these glowing and misleading headlines for her, yet give far less attention to LaVallee, a far more viable candidate.

    She’s a terrible candidate, pure and simple. Dems deserve better than someone who flouts FEC regulations.

  2. @sophie LaVallee out raised both of these knuckleheads combined right?

    I’d imagine they won’t be fixing the headline if they won’t even write that story.

  3. rothfus has over $1 million on hand and washington post says he has a 99.9% chance of winning. cook political report and larry sabato have it as safe republican. the race is over for mcclelland. dem donors wont waste the resources on her, especially with this FEC complaint hanging over her campaign

  4. Nick, did you look at the report? A $5000 check had to be returned. She actually raised $11,385, $500 LESS than Hugya. You should correct the headline.

    @Keystone PS: it’s good to know she has ethics issues as well as being unable to fundraise and unable to hold on to competent staff.
