Republican Pat Toomey raises $1.55 million toward Senate race

Pittsburgh Tribune Review:

Republican Senate candidate Pat Toomey has raised $1.55 million since announcing his candidacy in April, according to campaign finance figures he plans to release today.

Toomey, a former congressman from the Lehigh Valley, has about $1.05 million left in the bank. That compares to $1.8 million Sen. Bob Casey had raised by this point in his 2006 race against Rick Santorum, according to Toomey’s campaign.

“I’m thrilled at with the response we’ve gotten here in the first couple months of the campaign,” Toomey said. More than 15,000 people contributed to the campaign, he said. “I’m grateful, and I’m thrilled.”
