PA-Sen: Q1: Sestak Raises $312K, Has $1.7 Million COH
Joe Sestak chose to spend March walking the state by foot and it showed in his financial reports.
According to Jonathan Tamari of the Inquirer, the 2010 Democratic nominee raised just $312,000 in the first fundraising quarter. This gives the former Congressman about $1.7 million cash on hand.
In a vacuum those numbers could be good but they’re a problem when you’re running against an incumbent Senator who just pulled in $2.1 million and has $7.3 million cash on hand.
The ex-Admiral has always insisted that he wasn’t concerned with traditional campaign metrics like the support of party insiders and fundraising. So this news likely won’t upset him, though it could encourage his current and potential opponents.
