McCord Campaign to report raising $6.6 Million!

McCORD FOR GOVERNOR CAMPAIGN SURGES INTO 2014

Bryn Mawr, PA - The Rob McCord for Governor campaign surged into the start of 2014 with impressive year-end fundraising totals for 2013, a significant advantage in union endorsements, and a proven track record of successfully taking on Governor Tom Corbett.

“We enter this year incredibly well-positioned to win the Democratic primary in 2014,” said McCord campaign spokesperson Mark Nevins.  “We had a remarkably strong fundraising effort last year - and in considerably less time than any other candidate.  We have significantly more union support than any other candidate.  And while others talk about taking on Tom Corbett, Treasurer McCord is the only one doing it day in and day out.  We’re looking forward to the campaign ahead.”

McCord officially launched his campaign on September 24, 2013 and will report raising $6.6 million for the year.  Thanks to McCord’s disciplined approach, the campaign was able to finish the year with a healthy $6.0 million in the bank.

In addition, McCord enters 2014 with a significant advantage in support from union members across the state.  With endorsements from AFSCME Council 13, IBEW Locals 5, 126, and 143, UFCW Local 1776, the Pennsylvania Conference of Teamsters, Philadelphia’s AFSCME District 1199C, the Pennsylvania State Corrections Officers Association, IUOE Local 66, and the Utility Workers Union of America, McCord can count on the support of more than 215,000 active and retired union members.  By comparison, his closest competitor, Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz’s endorsements add up to slightly fewer than 30,000 active and retired members.

McCord is also the only candidate in the field who has done more than just talk about taking on Tom Corbett.  Governor Corbett’s recent decision to drop his deeply-flawed and ill-advised efforts to privatize the Pennsylvania lottery were the direct result of work done by Treasurer McCord and Attorney General Kathleen Kane who raised serious questions about the legality and financial wisdom of privatization.   Treasurer McCord also forced the Corbett Administration to confront inefficiencies in the state employees retirement fund, and McCord saved the state $5.1 million when he stymied an effort by Governor Corbett to pay a website consulting firm for a controversial, no-bid contract.

“Our cash on hand and our union support - both of which are still growing - are cause to feel good about how we’re starting 2014,” added Nevins.  “For voters looking for a candidate who has the executive experience to deliver real results and a track record of taking on and beating Tom Corbett, Rob McCord is the obvious choice."
