Shapiro heads into re-election with $3M in campaign account

  • Marc Levy/The Associated Press

(Harrisburg) — Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro will report that he’s heading into his 2020 re-election year with more than $3 million in his campaign bank account. That’s about 40% of what he spent to get elected in 2016 to his first four-year term.

In figures his campaign gave to The Associated Press, Shapiro, a Democrat, will report to the state that he raised $3.3 million in 2019 and had $3.1 million as of Jan. 1.

No Democrat has stepped forward to challenge Shapiro in the primary. One Republican has raised her hand: Heather Heidelbaugh, a long-time Pittsburgh-area litigator with little experience in electoral politics.
