Former Rep. Marjorie Margolies wins latest PA-13 fundraising cycle

Former U.S. Rep. Marjorie Margolies narrowly won the third campaign fundraising quarter for 2013 in the four-way Democratic primary election for her old 13th District seat. And judging from the "burn rate" of her campaign spending, she'll have to keep up that fundraising pace for what is looking to be an expensive election.

Former U.S. Rep. Marjorie Margolies narrowly won the third campaign fundraising quarter for 2013 in the four-way Democratic primary election for her old 13th District seat.  And judging from the "burn rate" of her campaign spending, she'll have to keep up that fundraising pace for what is looking to be an expensive election.

Margolies of Wynnewood, Montgomery County, raised $237,370 in the third cycle (and $422,715 overall so far) but spent $205,279, leaving her with $190,056 in the bank.

Dr. Val Arkoosh of Springfield Township, Montgomery County, raised $228,563 in the quarter (and $732,000 overall).  She has $588,212 in the bank, giving her a healthy lead in the cash-on-hand race.

State Sen. Daylin Leach of Wayne, Montgomery County, raised $171,503 in the quarter (and $529,093 overall) and spent $71,752, leaving him with $376,664 in the bank.

State Rep. Brendan Boyle of Northeast Philadelphia, raised $151,256 in the quarter (and $403,983 overall) and spent $67,817, leaving him with $308,103 in the bank.

The 13th District seat will be open in the May 20 primary election because U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz, who holds the post, is running in the Democratic primary election for governor.
