According to a letter from the Sen. Mike Stack campaign asking labor leaders for their endorsements, Stack will report $700,000 cash on hand for the end of this reporting period.
He started the year with with $397,133.64 still in the bank, and after the 3/31 deadline, will have at least $700,000 in the bank when the report is public. Stack’s campaign manager, Marty Marks, confirmed the number.
This leaked letter asks labor unions for their endorsements, but also pitches Stack’s electability and what he brings to the ticket:
What I can offer you is 110% and the opportunity to strengthen the ticket this fall with the candidate who brings the most in resources and appeal to the number two spot.
· When we file our finance report next week, we will have north of $700,000 cash on hand, demonstrating that we have the ability to bring resources to the ticket in November.
· As a Captain in the Pennsylvania National Guard, I am the only Democrat for Governor or Lieutenant Governor with military experience in a state that highly regards service to country.
· As a part-time actor and member of SAG-AFTRA, I am the only Democrat seeking a place on the ticket who is currently an active, card-carrying union member.
· I am from Philly and my place on the ballot ensures that at least one Philadelphian will be helping drive voter turnout in the most important Democratic voter base in the state.
This number will likely put him in the front of the pack in the fundraising game – for the second reporting period in a row.
He faces former Congressman Mark Critz, Bradford County Commissioner Mark Smith, State Rep. Brandon Neuman and Harrisburg City Councilman Brad Koplinski for the Democratic nomination for Lieutenant Governor.
