The second quarter fundraising numbers are out for Colorado’s top political races. This early in the election cycle, it’s hard to make apples-to-apples comparisons as candidates declared at different times, including some after the fundraising cutoff date.
Going forward you can expect to find the raw data on fundraising first here at Colorado Peak Politics for all the races you care about, and maybe even some you don’t.
We have decided not to include races that don’t matter. For example, we don’t care what Diana DeGette or Doug Lamborn raised, unless they have serious primary challengers. (Which they both currently don’t)
UPDATE: 6th Congressional District race added
UPDATE 2: Hick is still fundraising into his 2010 account, those figures added.
