Corbett raised $1.4M, spent $3M, around primary

HARRISBURG, Pa. - Gov. Tom Corbett's re-election campaign spent money twice as fast as it came in during the weeks surrounding Pennsylvania's primary.

Campaign finance reports filed Thursday showed the Republican governor received $1.4 million in contributions between May 6 and June 9, while he spent nearly $3 million _ pushing his total expenditures to more than $11 million.
Corbett still had $4.8 million on hand.
Democratic nominee Tom Wolf's report was not available Thursday morning. But Katie McGinty _ one of the three candidates Wolf defeated in the primary _ reported spending nearly $860,000, mostly for TV time, in the final weeks of that campaign.
As of early May, the reports showed the five candidates had collectively raised more than $50 million and spent $39 million even before the primary.
