McCord: $6.6 million in 2013

Published by James O'Toole on .


State Treasurer Rob McCord announced that his campaign had raised roughly $6.6 million in 2013, ending the year with a cash balance of $6 million.

Mark Nevins, Mr. McCord's spokesman, said that when campaign finances are officially disclosed at the end of the month, the McCord filing would show that he had raised $6.6 million for the governor's race through his governor's committee and the predecessor campaign committee he had operated in his treasurer's campaign.  That included $1.7 from Mr. McCord himself, $1.334 million in donations carried over from 2012, and $3.6 million in new donations from third parties.

Previously, Tom Wolf, the wealthy businessman and former secretary of revenue said that his 2013 receipts totaled $13.27 million, the bulk of that, just over $10 million, coming from him and his wife.  U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz said she had raised $6.5 million, including $3.1 million transferred from her federal campaign and $3.4 million in new donations from third parties.  Neither Mr. Wolf, nor, Ms. Schwartz broke out their cash on hand figure in the voluntary disclosures.  All of the candidates are due to file their campaign expense reports for the past year by Jan. 31. The other Democratic candidates, former DEP Secretary John Hanger, former DEP Secretary John Hanger, Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski, Lebanon County Commissioner Jo Ellen Litz, and Max Myers, a minister, have yet to offer a glimpse at their 2013 receipts.
