UPDATE (1:14pm): Stapleton’s campaign has been fined by the Secretary of State’s office for failing to meet reporting deadline requirements (scroll to bottom).
We’ll have a full roundup of the Q4 (2017) fundraising numbers a bit later; perhaps by then Republican gubernatorial candidate Walker Stapleton will have finally filed his report that was due before Midnight.
Last week Stapleton’s campaign leaked out news that it had raised a record amount of money in Q4, but we’re still waiting for confirmation of those figures because…well, according to one of Stapleton’s top advisors, it’s the Secretary of State’s fault:
FYI – for those watching closely. Stapleton camp tried to file report last night. Some kind of glitch (technical glitches are above my pay grade)-working with SOS office to fix and get filed ASAP. Sorry for delay, again we will file ASAP once sorted out. #copolitics

It’s worth noting here that no other major campaign in Colorado failed to report its Q4 fundraising report before last night’s deadline.
