Laura Olson of the Morning Call is reporting that the former Congressman raised $551,000 in the third quarter of 2015, which runs from July 1st to September 30th.
She also writes that he spent about $300,000 during that time and now has $2.4 million cash on hand.
McGinty released her top-line numbers earlier this month, showing she raised just over $1 million during this time period, nearly double what her opponent brought in (McGinty also had one less month to raise money as she entered the race on August 4th). Although since Sestak has been running for far longer, he still has a significant cash on hand advantage.
This Q3 total is also lower than Sestak’s total from this year’s second quarter, when he brought in just under $728K.
Sestak is running against McGinty and Braddock Mayor John Fetterman in the Democratic primary. Incumbent GOP Sen. Pat Toomey is also running for re-election.
