Schwartz says she raised $6.5M for Pa. governor's race
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz’s campaign for governor said today that she raised $6.5 million in 2013 as she vies for the Democratic nomination to challenge Republican Gov. Tom Corbett’s re-election.
Schwartz’s statement made her the second of eight Democratic gubernatorial candidates in Pennsylvania to reveal a fundraising tally.
Schwartz’s campaign spokesman said the $6.5 million she raised includes $3.1 million transferred from her federal campaign committee. Her campaign would not say how much of that money was unspent. The state allows candidates until Jan. 31 to file detailed reports of their contributions and expenditures for 2013.
Last month, York businessman and former state Revenue Secretary Tom Wolf said he had raised nearly $2.9 million, in addition to the $10 million of his own money Wolf has said he would contribute to his primary campaign.
