Burns and Critz reportedly neck-and-neck in fundraising
The two candidates in the 12th District special election appear to be on an even field when it comes to fundraising—notwithstanding the fact that one of them is a multimillionaire who can take off at any moment he chooses.
The Post-Gazette reports that Republican Tim Burns will report finishing March with about $340,000 in cash on hand, while Democrat Mark Critz will report about $325,000 in the bank.
First-quarter campaign finance reports will be filed next week. Both candidates went on the air with TV ads after the close of the reporting period, meaning their latest—and presumably biggest—expenditures won’t appear on the coming reports.
Burns reportedly sold his pharmacy technology company for millions, and is expected to dip into his own bank account at least a bit to fund his campaign.
