Corbett raised $6.8M in '13 for re-election effort

Posted: Updated:

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Gov. Tom Corbett raised $6.8 million last year and has $7.5 million in cash to use in this year's re-election effort, a campaign aide said Wednesday.

Campaign manager Mike Barley revealed the latest figures ahead of a public disclosure filing deadline next week.

The incumbent Republican spent about $24 million during his successful 2010 race.

Several of the Democrats seeking the nomination to take on Corbett in November have previously disclosed their 2013 fundraising figures.

State Treasurer Rob McCord has said he raised $6.6 million last year.

U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz has said she collected $6.5 million for the governor's race, including $3.1 million transferred from her federal campaign committee.

Former state Revenue Secretary Tom Wolf, a York businessman, has said he took in $13.3 million, including $10 million of his own money.
