Yesterday, the Santarsiero campaign revealed that they have brought in about $500,000.
Now, PoliticsPA has learned from sources close to Fitzpatrick that the GOP nominee raised over $495,000. As of the moment, Fitzpatrick has almost $700,000 cash on hand. We don’t how much Santarsiero has at this time.
Their circumstances were quite different, though, as Santarsiero got in the race in January 2015 while Fitzpatrick didn’t declare until January 2016. On the other hand, the Democratic primary was much more contentious and competitive.
