Fundraising numbers out for Democratic candidates for governor

Written by The Associated Press | Jan 2, 2014 11:00 AM

(Harrisburg) — Democratic Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz’s campaign for governor says she raised $6.5 million in 2013 as she vies for the Democratic nomination to challenge Govermor Corbett’s re-election.

Schwartz’s statement makes her the second Democratic gubernatorial candidate to reveal a fundraising tally.

Last month, York businessman Tom Wolf had said he’d raised nearly $2.9 million.

That’s in addition to the $10 million of his own money Wolf has said he’d contribute to his primary campaign.

There are six other declared candidates.

Schwartz’s campaign spokesman says the $6.5 million includes $3.1 million transferred from her federal campaign committee.

Her campaign wasn’t saying how much of it was unspent.

The state allows candidates until Jan. 31 to file detailed reports of their contributions and expenditures for 2013.
