Wednesday is the deadline for campaigns to report how they raised and spent money last year.

The former health care systems consultant reports raising $8.4 million and spending $2.9 million, with $5.5 million in cash as of Dec. 31. In addition to the money he gave himself, he reported a $1 million loan from Patrick Hampson, a private equity executive who lives a few blocks from Mango in the Pittsburgh suburb of Gibsonia.
