In fact, with a clear primary field ahead the incumbent has the chance to get a major head start over his eventual opponent.
Last week, Sen. Toomey released a few statistics from his latest filing but now we can take a full look.
According to his FEC report, Senator Pat Toomey raised $1,954,698.39 from July 1st to September 30th.
The campaign spent $1,673,055.09 leaving them with a more than sufficient $8,598,021.16 cash on hand.
So far Toomey has no debts, obligations or loans to deal with.
