Bognet Raises Historic Amount to Take on Cartwright
HAZLETON – Today, Jim Bognet, Former Trump Administration Official and Republican Nominee for Pennsylvania’s Eighth Congressional District, announced an historic second quarter fundraising haul in his challenge to incumbent Democratic Congressman Matt Cartwright. Bognet raised $266,512.90 in the second quarter, marking the largest sum ever raised in this same filing period against Cartwright. He finished Q2 with $278,120.21 COH.
“Matt Cartwright’s self serving time in Congress is up. I may just be the grandson of a coal miner who grew up digging ditches – I didn’t attend Canadian boarding school and I don’t fly on private jets - but I am going to build a broad movement of plumbers, truck drivers, factory workers, teachers, nurses, small business owners, cops, and coal miners. Together we will show the woke liberals that control the national Democrats that their and Matt Cartwright’s radical defund the police agenda has no place in Northeastern Pennsylvania.” – Jim Bognet
