    What's in Pa. Gov. Candidate's War Chest?
    Congresswoman Allyson Y. Schwartz is running for governor.

    U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz says she has more than $5 million on hand heading into the final six weeks of Pennsylvania's Democratic campaign for governor.

    Schwartz filed her campaign-finance report Tuesday morning.

    It shows that she received $1.6 million in campaign contributions between January and March -- pushing her total fundraising so far to about $8 million.

    Schwartz's biggest contributors included Emily's List, a national group that works to elect women who support abortion rights, which gave her $355,000. She also received $50,000 from the Local 98 of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers in Philadelphia.

    Reports are also due Tuesday from the other Democratic candidates -- Tom Wolf, Rob McCord and Katie McGinty -- as well as Republican Gov. Tom Corbett.

    Corbett's prospective primary challenger, conservative activist Bob Guzzardi, reports raising $4,500 and spending $4,100.
