PA-Sen: John Fetterman (D) Rakes In $1.1 Million In Two Weeks For Potential U.S. Senate Bid

2 min read

Some big news today out of Pennsylvania:

Two weeks after saying he’s eyeing a run for the U.S. Senate, Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman has raised $1 million.

Fetterman’s campaign says 33,000 contributions have totaled more than $1 million. Donations have come in from all 50 states and all of Pennsylvania’s 67 counties.

Earlier this month, Fetterman announced he’d raised $500,000 in just 72 hours.

Other Democrats are exploring the U.S. Senate race as well but this is a very encouraging sign for Fetterman’s bid. By the way, The Philadelphia Citizen release an article about to the top 15 things you may not know about Fetterman. Click here to read more.

Fetterman was also just interviewed by CBS News:

Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman spoke about his push to legalize marijuana, getting working-class people back to the Democratic Party, his political past and future, and being named a style god in a national interview that aired Sunday morning.

Fetterman spoke to Mark Whitaker for “CBS Sunday Morning” from his Braddock home and took a drive through the borough and past local landmarks including Carrie Furnace and Kennywood Park.

Much is made of the 6-foot-8 former Braddock mayor’s physical appearance in the video. He describes the contrast of himself and Gov. Tom Wolf, when they are standing next to each other, as comical.

Whitaker says Fetterman “looms tall” in person and in politics in a voice-over as clips of Fetterman speaking to people, presiding over the Senate and striking the gavel are shown.
