Hagarty Joins Wolf team

Published by James O'Toole on .

On Saturday, Tom Wolf got Rich Fitzgerald's endorsement; on Monday he got his money guy.

Eric Hagarty who handled fundraising for Mr. Fitzgerald's run for county executive and did the same chore for Mayor Bill Peduto last year, announced that he had signed on as deputy campaign manager for the York County businesman who has jumped to the top of the early polls of the Democratic race for governor.

Mr. Hagarty said in an Email that he would be concentrating on western Pennsylvania for Wolf, while continuing his ties to Fitzgerald's fundraising operation.  Mr. Hagarty's access to the donor lists for the Peduto and Fitzgerald efforts will be an asset to the Wolf effort, although fund-raising is hardly an area of concern for the businssman who donated upwards of $10 million to his bid for the Democratic nomination.
