PA-Sen: Q3: McGinty Reveals $5.3 Million Haul

katie_mcgintyThe Senate Democratic candidate has unveiled her fundraising total.

According to the McGinty campaign, they raised $5,387,713.75 in the third quarter which ran from July 1st to September 30th.

The Democrat’s team is touting their lead over Pat Toomey, who raised $4.9 million over this period.

“The numbers don’t lie: Katie is a strong candidate with a winning campaign,” said Campaign Manager Jordan Marks. “Pat Toomey has been doing this for close to six years, but after just a year, Katie is leaving him in the dust. Again and again, she has shown that she can compete and lead because she knows the issues, she listens to the voters, and she’s ready to fight for what she believes. Expect to see a lot more wins in the coming weeks, as McGinty Momentum continues to overtake Out-of-Touch Toomey.”

The McGinty campaign did not include their spending or cash on hand totals and their FEC report has yet to be posted. We’ll have a more in-depth report when it is.

  1. Are we voting party lines or are we voting for the person that’s best suited for the job? My opinion is McGinty is better for Pennsylvania you don’t have to agree just look at his record and look at his Holdings

  2. @DD, The NYT editorial board hasn’t endorsed a Republican since Eisenhower. If anyone thinks that NYC’s birdcage liner will have any sway on Pennsylvania voters, I have a bridge to sell you.

  3. I can’t believe anyone would vote for me. I’m so shady. I’ll kill more people than the Clintons to get ahead.

  4. Katie is a liar. She lies when she doesn’t even need to and will say anything to get elected.

  5. Republican Trolls enjoy your next 18 days of Toomey as your Senator. November 8 is coming. McGinty represents Main Street in Pennsylvania. Toomey represents Wall Street. Main Street votes in this election. Wall Street doesn’t get a vote and they can’t buy enough votes to save Toomey in this election. If you are a millionaire or billionaire I understand why you want Toomey. If you are a regular person and you want Toomey you are just plain stupid!!!!!!

  6. Apples to oranges comparison without the cash on hand numbers.

    Toomey was collecting general election contributions during his uncontested primary. Donors weren’t going to pay general election contributions to McGinty when she was in a contested primary.

  7. My son is ambitious. Do you have any idea how many truckstops he visits in a single night? He will give a real b—job.

  8. Sanctuary Cities
    Is code for,
    I don’t like all these Latinos,
    Taking over my country.
    Even though they’re not,
    But it makes me feel better,
    Having an enemy,
    For a reason I can excuse,
    Other than fear,
    Of the other,
    Of a future not like my mis-remembered past,
    That makes me uncomfortable.
    Mind your own business.

  9. Toomey is great for Law Enforcement, and that is all! Law Enforcement also endorsed SICKO TRUMP, and we see his chances of getting in the Oval Office 0%— Time for Law Enforcement to start voting with their heads, not the PARTY of GOP– Grab OUR Pu–y!!!

  10. Katie McGinty is indeed the 9th of 10 children. Her father was a Philadelphia Police Officer and her mom was a restaurant hostess.

    While Katie McGinty was growing up in that blue-collar Pennsylvania home, where was Pat Toomey? Pat Toomey was growing up in Rhode Island, not here.

    When Katie McGinty was choosing colleges to go to directly after high school she decided to go with her Pennsylvania roots and attend St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia. Where was Pat Toomey? Pat Toomey decided to go to an elite school in Massachusetts, not here in Pennsylvania.

    When Katie McGinty was fighting for cleaner air and water for Pennsylvania children and families, where was Pat Toomey? Toomey was making millions on Wall Street.

    The choice is clear.

    Katie McGinty is and has always been one of us. Her story is a Pennsylvania story.

    As the Philadelphia Inquirer said:
    “Katie McGinty is focused on the problems of real people, while Pat Toomey is a friend of big business.”

    That sums it all up.

    Vote Hillary Clinton and Katie McGinty on Tuesday Nov. 8th

  11. A MUST READ:

    Inquirer Editorial: Katie McGinty for the U.S. Senate

    If corporations were people, Pennsylvania’s Republican freshman Sen. Pat Toomey would be the right senator for them. His approach to governance is to slash regulations and taxes to help companies, which he believes would provide good paying jobs. But that hasn’t worked for average people struggling with flat wages, job insecurity and wondering why so little of the good economic news isn’t about them.
    Toomey, 54, would eliminate Obamacare and let the marketplace decide to provide benefits like covering children up to age 26. He’d kill an agency that keeps lenders from preying on consumers and return to the days of low-regulation and low-oversight of Wall Street, which led to the financial meltdown.
    He opposes forcing companies to clean up greenhouse gases which contribute to global warming, a factor in the spate of floods and wildfires ravaging the country. And, he favors Supreme Court decisions that allow unlimited corporate funds to persuade voters in elections.
    A product of the radical right, Toomey voted to shut down the government over raising the debt ceiling rather than find a civil solution. But, in a stellar moment, he crossed the aisle to seek background checks for those who wish to purchase guns. He failed, but says he’d try again if re-elected. Let’s hope it’s with more conviction than his politically expedient equivocation over whether to support his party’s presidential nominee, Donald Trump, an admitted serial molester.
    In contrast, there is no doubt that Toomey’s challenger, Democrat Katie McGinty, has the interests of Pennsylvania’s people at heart. She speaks as a woman who grew up working class in Philadelphia and struck out on a career in public service, advising President Bill Clinton on the environment, leading Pennsylvania’s Department of Environmental Protection and serving, albeit briefly, as Gov. Wolf’s chief of staff.
    McGinty, 53, wants to raise the minimum wage, expand child care credits and fight for equal pay for women. She would invest in research, skilled manufacturing and renewable energy. McGinty wants to expand pre-kindergarten, improve public schools, make college affordable and training available to adults. She would lower health care costs by decreasing co-payments and high deductibles and cut abusive drug pricing.
    These candidates’ sharp disagreements on issues should be enough to distinguish them in a tight race, but they and their supporters are exaggerating each other’s ethical lapses. For example, after leaving the Clinton administration, McGinty worked with a law firm that erroneously listed her as a lobbyist for a few days on a disclosure form. The attack is a distortion. But when McGinty worked as the state’s environmental secretary, she oversaw contracts awarded to an advocacy group which hired her husband as a $3,700 consultant.
    The Ethics Commission rightly chided her. This isn’t good but not as egregious as Toomey’s forces claim. She attacks Toomey for sitting on the Senate Banking Committee while holding bank stock. That doesn’t violate ethics rules.
    Because she has a genuine grasp on the human consequences of government policies and seeks to improve the quality of life for all, The Inquirer endorses KATIE MCGINTY for U.S. Senate.

  12. McGinty is nothing but an ambitious politician. Toomey has been great for law enforcement, which is why Toomey has all the law enforcement endorsements. Send McGinty packing. Tell her to go get a real job for once in her life.
