Democratic Senate candidate Joe Sestak’s campaign says they raised $1.95 million during the second quarter. The bulk of that money – $1.6 million – was apparently brought in during the last month.

Spokesman Jonathon Dworkin says, “The response around the state to Joe’s message of putting working families first has been tremendous. We are especially encouraged by the generous support that allowed him to do so well in such a short period of time. As Joe crisscrosses Pennsylvania — like he did in attending more than 650 events from January 1 through the primary — we find that Pennsylvania voters are looking for the pragmatic approach he offers and not a return to an ideology that puts big corporations first in the hope that the wealth will trickle down.”

We haven’t seen numbers from Republican Pat Toomey’s campaign. Since they’re already running television ads, I’m assuming they’re satisfied with second quarter totals.
