Q3: Rothfus $543K, Critz $500K

In Pa.’s most competitive congressional election, Republican challenger Keith Rothfus outpaced incumbent Rep. Mark Critz by $43,000. Rothfus raised $543K to Critz’s $500K.

That’s according to each candidate’s FEC filings.

But Critz has the edge with cash on hand, $364K to $161K (though Critz also has $120K in campaign debts – much of it from a loan to himself). That’s because Rothfus spend over a million dollars during the 3rd quarters, from July to September.

That may prove to be money well spent; Rothfus put himself in a position where he’s close enough to Critz in the polling that outside groups see his race as a worthwhile investment.

  1. It’s costing an incumbent a lot of money to keep his seat. If he had a good record to stand on or real supporters he wouldn’t have to! But most of all talk to his soon to be ex-constiuents, he would have lost in his old district!
    Critz is the worthless, spineless wonder!


  2. Just saw video of Mrs Romney speaking in Elizabethtown pa with loyal everyday people holding Romney signs in background. Including…wait for it…PaGOP Chair Rob Gleason! Hey Keith how many regular guy Millionare party bosses will behind you at tonight’s debate?
