Nevertheless, the former Congressman stills hold the cash on hand lead over McGinty, and it appears that Braddock Mayor John Fetterman had a weaker 4th Quarter after starting off strong.
All of the Democrats fall well short of the incumbent’s totals, though, as Senator Pat Toomey currently has $9.58 million cash on hand.
Joe Sestak pulled in $374,088.69 and spent $184,413.63. At the moment, he has $2,584,622.99 cash on hand.
Sestak received a majority of his money, $365,960, from individual donors and most of those donations were less than $1,000.
The candidate who likes to state that he isn’t a part of the establishment can point to his PAC totals as proof. The former Congressman received just $7,897 in PAC money with $5,000 coming from his own Deep Blue PAC.
Former Allegheny City Council candidate Caroline Mitchell gave $2,000 while former Mercer County Commissioner Ken Ammann threw in $250. Finally, the PAC of the law firm Stroock, Stroock & Lavan contributed $500.
Like nearly all candidates most of the ex-Admiral’s money went to staff, consultants and supplies for the office.
The biggest sum of cash, $19,532.83, went to GSI Inc., which consults progressive candidates and organizations when it comes to fundraising strategy.
The campaign paid Blue State Digital $3,125 for advice on online techniques and $2,250 to NGP Van to rent their software. Another $3,237 went towards online tools from Wired for Change as well as $1,400 for the use of the database of Leadership Directories.
Finally, $8,931.32 went to the Kennedy Printing Company.
