Politics PA 2012 Congressional Fundraising Winners and Losers


Pat Meehan (R-Delaware, PA-7). The sophomore Congressman is avoiding the partisan fights that trap some of his DC colleagues and building a reputation as a pragmatic problem solver in SEPA. His bank account shows it: though he raised practically nothing at the end of the year, he retains $1 million cash on hand, meaning he’s not likely to be a top tier Dem target in 2014 as he was (nominally) in 2012. A shrewd campaigner, he cancelled a $500K ad buy at the end of the campaign. A good decision considering he won by 19 points.
