Pa. cash surge grows as election nears

As the Pennsylvania gubernatorial race barrels to an end, money is pouring in faster than ever - and not always going in a predictable direction.

“Corbett's biggest chunks also include more than $250,000 from Vahan Gureghian, a Gladwyne lawyer and operator of the state's largest charter school, $100,000 from Foster Friess, a Wyoming investment executive active in conservative Christian politics, and $200,000 from Bob J. Perry, a Houston developer and prolific GOP donor.
Onorato has accepted more than $350,000 from H.F. "Gerry" Lenfest, the Philadelphia-area philanthropist and Democratic donor, $100,000 from Thomas Buckner, Western Pennsylvania owner of defense contractor Ibis Tek, and $100,000 from California supermarket billionaire Ron Burkle.”

FYI, according to the PA Department of State’s Campaign Finance reporting website ( http://www.campaignfinance.state.pa.us/ContributionSearch.aspx ), Mr. Gureghian has contributed heavily for the past several years.
For calendar year 2007:  $224,620.00
For calendar year 2008:  $267,205.93
For calendar year 2009:  $330,302.76
For year to date 2010:    $421,025.00 (this includes the $250K Corbett contributions))
