According to Laura Olson of Morning Call, Senate Democratic nominee Katie McGinty raised $2.9 million in the second quarter of 2016.
“Katie’s impressive fundraising quarter is a clear sign of the strong support she has all across the Commonwealth,” McGinty Campaign Spokesman Sean Coit stated. “After six years of Pat Toomey pushing Wall Street’s agenda, Pennsylvanians are ready to elect a real champion for the middle class and send Toomey packing this November.”
Nonetheless, McGinty still trails Senator Pat Toomey who brought in $3.1 million.
While the numbers for the amount spent and the cash on hand for both campaigns have yet to be released (they are due by Friday), Toomey will probably still have a significant advantage over his challenger.
McGinty, though, still has the upper hand in some areas. A Democratic Super PAC has reserved $9 million in ad time on her behalf which is $3 million more than a competing Republican Super PAC was able to do for Toomey.
The second fundraising quarter ran from April 1st, 2016 to June 30th, 2016.
