Shapiro raised $25M for gubernatorial campaign this summer, breaking Pa. record

Mastriano raised more than $3M during same time period

PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio)Pennsylvania gubernatorial candidate Josh Shapiro has broken a record, significantly outpacing his opponent in campaign fundraising.

According to campaign finance filings, between June and September alone, Shapiro raked in more than $25 million. Republican challenger Doug Mastriano raised a little more than $3 million over the same period.

Shapiro’s massive cash haul brings the Democrat’s fundraising total this cycle to more than $50 million — the most any gubernatorial candidate has raised in the state’s history.

This beats the previous record set by former Gov. Ed Rendell, who raised about $42 million during his 2002 campaign.

Following the filings, the latest CBS News poll shows Shapiro leading Mastriano by 11 points among likely voters.
