Q3: Congressional Breakdown 2016

moneyWith all FEC reports now in, we take a look at the results for every congressional district.

2016’s second quarter runs from July 1st, 2016 to September 30th, 2016.

Below we’ve included the top-line numbers for every district in the commonwealth, which includes the amounts raised, spent, and current cash on hand. Also, each incumbent is identified in italics along with their PVI and the year they were first sworn into Congress.


Rep. Bob Brady-D+28-1998

Raised: $26,383

Spent: $49,326

COH: $538,300

Link: http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/626/201610159032540626/201610159032540626.pdf

The Philly power broker could really help some candidates with that cash on hand total.


Rep. Chaka Fattah-D+38-1995

Hard to raise money when you’re awaiting sentencing.

Dwight Evans

Raised: $228,547

Spent: $197,396

COH: $106,537

Link: http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/963/201610159032761963/201610159032761963.pdf

Evans doesn’t need much cash for the general election so these numbers aren’t a problem.


Rep. Mike Kelly-R+8-2011

Raised: $288,140

Spent: $156,449

COH: $975,972

Link: http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/551/201610149032523551/201610149032523551.pdf

With all that cash, Rep. Kelly is getting a lot of cash from needy Republicans right now.


Rep. Scott Perry-R+9-2013

Raised: $146,879

Spent: $100,975

COH: $380,524

Link: http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/901/201610159032640901/201610159032640901.pdf

Not much money, but he doesn’t have anything to worry about.


Rep. Glenn Thompson-R+8-2009

Raised: $248,538

Spent: $174,349

COH: $419,681

Link: http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/868/201610159032664868/201610159032664868.pdf

Congressman Thompson is in solid financial shape in a Republican-favored district.

Kerith Strano Taylor

Raised: $10,018

Spent: $3,611

COH: $18,043

Link: http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/850/201610119032244850/201610119032244850.pdf

Taylor is going to need more to take this GOP seat.


Rep. Ryan Costello-R+2-2015

Raised: $306,180

Spent: $563,245

COH: $1,144,327

Link: http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/655/201610159032539655/201610159032539655.pdf

This could be one of those districts where voters split their ticket.

Mike Parrish

Raised: $151,547

Spent: $89,515

COH: $106,764

Link: http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/994/201610169032879994/201610169032879994.pdf

The lack of party support makes Parrish’s odds too long.


Rep. Pat Meehan-R+2-2011

Raised: $269,288

Spent: $227,321

COH: $2,414,541

Link: http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/784/201610149032521784/201610149032521784.pdf

An incumbent in a competitive seat with a terrible opponent will lead to the massive cash on hand total you see above.

Mary Ellen Balchunis

Raised: $72,794

Spent: $45,447

COH: $50,448

Link: http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/120/201610159032826120/201610159032826120.pdf

Balchunis is going to need a lot more money to compete.


Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick-R+1-2011

Raised: $241

Spent: $648,152

COH: $322,368

Link: http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/007/201610149032485007/201610149032485007.pdf

Fitzpatrick gave $600,000 to the state GOP, so safe to say he doesn’t have to give Brian a Christmas gift this year.

Brian Fitzpatrick

Raised: $746,658

Spent: $903,704

COH: $533,394

Link: http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/035/201610149032527035/201610149032527035.pdf

The first-time candidate continues to bring in cash at a more than healthy pace.

Steve Santarsiero

Raised: $649,814

Spent: $813,518

COH: $227,728

Link: http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/037/201610159032823037/201610159032823037.pdf

The Democratic challenger has kept pace in this toss-up race.


Rep. Bill Shuster-R+14-2001

Raised: $445,336

Spent: $367,770

COH: $969,992

Link: http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/024/201610149032499024/201610149032499024.pdf

Shuster has plenty of cash to use for his third match-up with Halvorson.

Art Halvorson

Raised: $21,844

Spent: $12,390

COH: $9,454

Link: http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/456/201610159032875456/201610159032875456.pdf

Halvorson is used to running against Rep. Shuster with a massive cash disadvantage.


Rep. Tom Marino-R+12-2011

Raised: $127,197

Spent: $280,064

COH: $275,017

Link: http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/138/201610159032554138/201610159032554138.pdf

His cash on hand total is more than enough in this district.


Rep. Lou Barletta-R+6-2011

Raised: $234,777

Spent: $130,579

COH: $520,336

Link: http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/360/201610159032626360/201610159032626360.pdf

The incumbent’s fundraising has probably been enough.

Mark Marsicano

Raised: $37,000

Spent: $12,328

COH: $297,754

Link: http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/173/201610149032472173/201610149032472173.pdf

In every sense, the Democrat is running too far behind.


Rep. Keith Rothfus-R+9-2013

Raised: $199,654

Spent: $732,830

COH: $770,752

Link: http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/171/201610149032507171/201610149032507171.pdf

Judging by that burn rate, Congressman Rothfus isn’t leaving anything on the field.

Erin McClelland

Raised: $65,164

Spent: $52,116

COH: $42,503

Link: http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/313/201610159032550313/201610159032550313.pdf

Not enough cash for this red district.


Rep. Brendan Boyle-D+13-2015

Raised: $118,840

Spent: $115,855

COH: $496,389

Link: http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/585/201610149032531585/201610149032531585.pdf

Boyle could be very popular with his colleagues with all that cash on hand.


Rep. Michael Doyle-D+15-1995

Raised: $171,523

Spent: $121,254

COH: $292,833

Link: http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/375/201610149032451375/201610149032451375.pdf

Rep. Doyle isn’t posting great numbers, but then again he doesn’t need to.


Rep. Charlie Dent-R+2-2005

Raised: $267,167

Spent: $244,979

COH: $1,439,848

Link: http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/830/201610149032488830/201610149032488830.pdf

A seven-digit treasure chest protects Dent and his maverick ways.


Rep. Joe Pitts-R+4-1997

Raised: $0

Spent: $11,761

COH: $67,250

Link: http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/795/201610119032244795/201610119032244795.pdf

No re-election, no need to fundraise.

Lloyd Smucker

Raised: $404,222

Spent: $344,152

COH: $263,155

Link: http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/945/201610149032524945/201610149032524945.pdf

The Republican State Senator continues to loan his campaign massive amounts of money.

Christina Hartman

Raised: $353,290

Spent: $398,898

COH: $160,003

Link: http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/341/201610159032664341/201610159032664341.pdf

The numbers prove that Hartman is seriously contending this race.


Rep. Matt Cartwright-D+4-2013

Raised: $164,461

Spent: $114,391

COH: $760,799

Link: http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/174/201610159032874174/201610159032874174.pdf

This is a seat that is more partisan than its PVI score would indicate, meaning Cartwright can spread his cash around to fellow Democrats.


Rep. Tim Murphy-R+10-2003

Raised: $147,555

Spent: $132,101

COH: $1,305,250

Link: http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/037/201610159032538037/201610159032538037.pdf

That’s a lot of money to be sitting on.

  1. Remove Chaka from this story since he’s no longer a candidate or a member of Congress. You should be asking where the filing for Republican James Jones is.

  2. Why is Rothfus spending anything in the 12th? He knows that we put a rat into the enemies camp and we are calling the shots there. Okay, the rat is pretty dumb but there is no need to waste a million bucks on a runaway race. My cousin Stevie Z has campaign debt from the A.G. Race and we were counting on Rothfus to retire it. If we have to dig into our own pockets, then he can find his own way out of the next t pike snowstorm.

  3. Smucker is literally going to lose. I can’t believe it. He reported more than half a million dollars in debt! I don’t understand how a sitting state Senator in a relatively red (R+4) district is having this much trouble. And to make matters worse he’s in a lose-lose situation regarding his support or non-support of Trump.
