Press Release: Bognet For Congress announces over $275,000 first quarter fundraising number, a massive haul for PA-8

Hazleton, PA - Former Trump Administration appointee and PA-8 Congressional candidate Jim Bognet today announced he will report raising over $275,000 in his first quarter 2020 FEC report. Bognet entered the race on January 23, 2020. In less than 10 weeks, Bognet more than doubled the combined fundraising total of his Republican primary opponents during their 2019 reporting.

“I am humbled by the outpouring of support from voters around the district who know I will fight for President Trump’s agenda and restore conservative leadership to Northeastern Pennsylvania,” Jim Bognet said. “We received the most signatures to get on the ballot, and have now demonstrated the ability to raise the resources necessary to defeat Nancy Pelosi’s lapdog Matt Cartwright and Make Northeastern Pennsylvania Red Again.”
