PA-2: Q3: Muroff Has $160K Cash on Hand

MuroffThe end of September brought the end of the third fundraising quarter of 2015.

Dan Muroff was the first to release some of his numbers publicly.

Muroff’s campaign stated that they’ve received contributions from 365 individuals and has $160,000 cash on hand.

“The launch of our campaign has been met with tremendous excitement,” said Muroff. “I am running for Congress because I have long championed responsible gun control, strong environmental protections and to advance an economic agenda that focuses on lifting up poor and middle class families.”

“Dan’s support is a clear indication that our campaign will have the resources necessary to communicate Danʼs progressive message,” said Philip Hensley, the campaign’s finance director.

Muroff is challenging Chaka Fattah in the 2nd Congressional district. Fattah is currently facing 29 criminal charges.

The leader of Philadelphia’s Ninth Ward, as well as a former President of CeaseFire PA and the League of Conservation Voters, Muroff was the first candidate to enter the race against Fattah.

Since then, Lower Merion Township Commissioner Brian Gordon has jumped into the race. Additionally, on Thursday, we reported that State Rep. Brian Sims is also about to enter the Democratic primary.

The second district is rated D+38, so the winner of the Democratic primary will almost certainly take the seat come November.

  1. Didn’t Dan announce mid-quarter? So, it’s not even a full quarter’s haul, and it’s during the slow summer months.

    Most of the congressional campaigns are doing very little before the Nov elections, so this haul should be above average.

  2. That’s a legitimate haul for a primary campaign. Still it’s the Philly media market. If he wants to get on TV it’s a *lot* of money. But he may not need to do broadcast.
