It’s that time again, PeakNation™, in which we break down the funds raised by Colorado gubernatorial candidates. Campaign finance reports were due last night. And, there were some surprises. Secretary of State Scott Gessler raised $28,278, which topped both Beauprez and Tancredo, who led last report. Tancredo raised the second most at $25,294. He also had the most cash on hand (COH) at $98,540. Beauprez was second in COH with $64,035.
While candidates had a decent fundraising quarter, it still would appear that Republican donors are waiting for the field to narrow before jumping in.
Here’s how it breaks down (in alphabetical order):
Cash on Hand (COH): $64,035
Scott Gessler (Most Raised)
Maybe you should revise the headline to: Hick has the most cash on hand and has purchased $1M worth of ad time.
