Fundraising reports for the third quarter of 2017 are due to be filed today (both state and federal races). There are still a few candidates in big races, such as GOP gubernatorial hopeful Walker Stapleton, who won’t have much to report because they only recently became formal candidates, but otherwise Q3 numbers provide our best look thus far at how things are shaping up for 2018.
We’ll update this post regularly with reports from key races as they become available…
♦ Democrat Donna Lynne reports raising $384,335 in Q3, despite waiting until Aug. 1 to formally begin fundraising for her campaign. Lynne’s campaign has $321,558 cash-on-hand.
♦ Republican Victor Mitchell raised $9,388 in Q3 and now has $2,318,630 cash-on-hand. Mitchell wrote his campaign a $3 million personal check and has publicly stated that he is not actively raising money at this point in the race.
♦ Incumbent Republican Cynthia Coffman reports $10,600 in contributions for a COH amount of $42,070. Coffman is still considered a potential candidate for Governor in 2018.
♦ Democrat Joe Neguse reports raising $165,437 in Q3, with $174,086 cash-on-hand. Neguse has raised $243,032 since announcing his candidacy in mid-June.
♦ Democrat Jason Crow reports raising $220,556 in Q3, with $393,332 cash-on-hand. Crow has raised a total of $521,037 for his 2018 campaign.
