Keegan Gibson says Larry Maggi is the best funded challenger ever to run against Tim Murphy:
Fortunes appear to be looking up for Larry Maggi in the race for Congress in PA-18. The Washington County Commissioner reports having raised $203,000 in the second quarter and $405,000 cash on hand, each the largest amount ever for a challenger to Rep. Tim Murphy (R-Allegheny).
The announcement today comes after a successful first quarter where Maggi raised $169,254. Unlike last time however, when Maggi lent himself $126,000, none of the latest haul came from loans. With a pair of successful fundraising efforts in hand, Maggi renewed his hopes of earning further recognition from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
