Barletta reports $1.6M to Casey's $10M in Pa. Senate race

Posted: Updated:

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Republican U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta raised nearly $1.3 million in the first three months of 2018 for his campaign to contest Democratic U.S. Sen. Bob Casey's re-election bid in Pennsylvania.

Barletta's campaign said Monday it had about $1.6 million in the bank as of March 31. That compares with the $10 million-plus that Casey's campaign said it had after raising $2.2 million in the period.

Barletta spent about half of the amount he raised during the quarter, while Casey spent about 40 percent of what he raised.

Also running are Republican Jim Christiana and Libertarian Dale Kerns. Each man reported less than $20,000 in the bank heading into 2018.

Barletta is endorsed by the state Republican Party and backed by President Donald Trump. Casey is seeking a third six-year term in office.
