Combined, Pennsylvania’s incumbents raised $4,300,685.83. That is almost $1 million more than the first quarter. Of that, $2,717,228.50 came from Political Action Committees (PACs).
Here is the breakdown of each candidate’s total raised, and the amount that came from PACs:
Congressman Ryan Costello (R-Chester) topped the list for total fundraising with $499,105. 68% of his fundraising came from PACs, totaling $342,500. The haul, and PAC contributions are likely a result of Costello being targeted by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Emily’s List, and the National Republican Congressional Committee calling his race a ‘bellwether.’
Congressman Tom Marino (R-Lycoming) continues to be at the bottom of the list for fundraising, after finishing at the bottom for the first quarter as well.
