Wachspress outpaces opponents in fundraising


Debbie Wachspress announced Tuesday that she raised more than both of her competitors combined, in the Democratic Primary to take on Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick in Pennsylvania’s 1st Congressional District.

Wachspress raised more than $235,000 between October and December of last year with nearly 80 percent of her contributions coming in increments of $200 or below and all of her contributions coming from individual donors not corporate PACs. She starts off the election year with over $350,000 in the bank, having raised nearly half of a million dollars so far this cycle.
