HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Democratic U.S. Sen. Bob Casey reports that he’s heading into his re-election year with $8.6 million in campaign cash, easily leading his rivals.
Casey’s campaign reported the tally Friday. Jan. 31 is the deadline to give full campaign finance reports to the Federal Election Commission.
Casey’s cash total is almost twice as much as he reported at the same point in 2012 while running for his current term.
U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta says his campaign had more than $1 million, while Paul Addis, a former energy-sector executive, says he had more than $1.3 million. They’re running for the GOP nomination to challenge Casey.
