Pennsylvania Republican Sees Massive Fundraising Haul in First Weeks of Senate Campaign

Reagan McCarthy, Townhall

"Pennsylvania GOP Senate candidate Jeff Bartos, a lifelong Pennsylvanian and small business owner, announced an impressive fundraising haul during the opening weeks of his campaign. Bartos previously ran for Lieutenant Governor in 2018, and vowed to 'get s**t done' if elected to the upper chamber. Bartos brought in $1.2 million in the first 3 weeks of his Senate bid, while drawing a clear distinction between himself and 'career politicians' who have failed Pennsylvanians."

"Jeff Bartos has personally talked to more than 500 small business owners about their economic struggles during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. He has also been able to help, providing forgivable loans to them – and hundreds of other owners, too – through the Pennsylvania 30 Day Fund, a nonprofit he cofounded. 'Those conversations are just what you’d expect when you speak to people, whether it’s in Bedford, or Somerset or Cambria,' Bartos said during a recent telephone interview. 'Those conversations are devastating, hopeful, happy, sad and run the gamut of emotions. Lots of crying – sometimes tears of joy, sometimes tears of despair.' And, while assisting those businesses, Bartos, a Republican from Montgomery County, became inspired to enter the 2022 U.S. Senate race for the seat that will be open since U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey, also a Republican, decided to not seek reelection.Jeff Bartos has personally talked to more than 500 small business owners about their economic struggles during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic."

"Montgomery County Republican Jeff Bartos launched his campaign for U.S. Senate on Monday, emphasizing his work to aid small businesses and pledging to fight for people who believed that former President Donald Trump stood up for them. A former candidate for lieutenant governor in 2018, Bartos, 48, is the most high-profile Republican to enter the Senate race so far, but in a contest that could determine control of the chamber after 2022, he is highly unlikely to be the last."

Fund that saves jobs and supports small businesses reaches aid goal

“Like many small business owners during the coronavirus pandemic, Jeff Bartos was trying to figure out how to stay afloat as the economy took a nasty turn. The Montgomery County real estate developer and Berks native admitted that he was “exhausted” when he took a call from a childhood friend, Pete Snyder, in mid-April. Snyder had started an organization in Virginia to help small businesses during the downturn and urged his friend to do the same in Pennsylvania. Inspired by that phone call, PA 30 Day Fund was formed on May 6 by Bartos, and fellow businessmen Richard Phillips and Roger Braunfeld, to help for-profit small businesses statewide. The first checks were mailed three weeks later.”
