Street Raises Close to $245K in Q2

This Philadelphia Democrat has filed his campaign’s first finance report since filing a statement of candidacy with the Federal Elections Commission for U.S. Senate. 

State Sen. Sharif Street (D-Philadelphia) raised just under $245,000 from the beginning of April to the end of June. 

His campaign spent just under $55,000 during that time period and entered July with $190,000 cash on hand

On April 1, Street filed a statement of candidacy for U.S. Senate, and launched an exploratory committee one week after.  

However, Street hasn’t formally announced a bid for the seat and is still reportedly considering a run for the statewide office. 

Lt. Gov. John Fetterman currently holds a substantial fundraising advantage in the race.

Fetterman raised $2.5 million in the 2nd quarter and entered July with $3 million cash on hand. Fetterman has raised more than $6.5 million since launching his campaign. 

Montgomery County Commissioner Val Arkoosh raised $1 million since entering the race in early-April to the end of June. She entered July with just over $630,000 cash on hand.  

State Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta (D-Philadelphia) raised $500,000 from the beginning of April to the end of June and entered July with slightly more than $280,000 cash on hand. Kenyatta has raised just over $875,000 since entering the 2022 race. 

Dr. Kevin Baumlin, the chief of emergency and urgent care services at Pennsylvania Hospital, announced that his campaign raised over $360,000 in the second quarter of 2021. He entered July with just over $125,000 cash on hand

The 2022 Democratic race to succeed outgoing Sen. Pat Toomey includes several other candidates as well. 

In addition to Arkoosh, Baumlin, Fetterman, Kenyatta, and Street, former Norristown Borough Council President John McGuigan is also in the race. 

Rep. Conor Lamb (D-Allegheny), who is reportedly weighing a run for Senate, raised just under $980,000 in the second quarter and entered July with $1.77 million cash on hand.

According to the FEC website, Brandaun Dean, Larry Johnson, Alexandria Khalil, Kyle Norton, and Alan Shank have also filed statements of candidacy for the Democratic primary.
