Incumbent U.S. Rep. Tim Murphy has a giant financial advantage over his rivals in PA18.
The five-term congressman from Upper St. Clair had $1.38 million in cash at the end of the Jan. 1-April 4 pre-primary reporting period, to the $80,000 for GOP challenger Evan Feinberg and $169,674 $266,000 for Democrat Larry Maggi.
Murphy raised $661,656 in the period and spent $323,953.
Maggi, a Washington County commissioner, raised a meek $17,100 and spent $4,950. Most of his funds came from a $140,000 self-loan.
CORRECTION: We pulled Maggi's old 2002 report by accident. We'll put up his 2012 FEC report once the agency posts it.
UPDATE: Maggi's report shows he raised $169,254 during the period and self-loaned an extra $126,053. His campaign spent $28,565.
