(Harrisburg) -- The U.S. Senate says it has no financial disclosure filing from the mayor of a small town near Pittsburgh who is campaigning for the Democratic nomination to challenge Republican incumbent Pat Toomey.

John Fetterman said Tuesday the form should be filed in the coming days. He calls missing the deadline an honest oversight.

He says he expects it to be a dry and drama-free disclosure of how little he's worth. The form asks U.S. Senate candidates to disclose their sources of income and assets, and there's a $200 fine for missing the deadline. Fetterman filed a statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission on Sept. 10.

The three-way Democratic primary field also includes Joe Sestak and Katie McGinty. The primary election is April 26.
