Romanoff Won’t Release FEC Numbers Until Next Week

(Obviously Romanoff didn’t raise enough money. There’s NO other reason for this. – promoted by Colorado Pols)

This tidbit in Michael Booth’s Denver Post story this morning about first quarter Senate fundraising totals:

Bennet’s Democratic primary challenger, Andrew Romanoff, is the only candidate who has not disclosed how much money he raised in the latest quarter. Campaign officials said they would make the necessary April 15 filing to the Senate and the Federal Election Commission but would not release totals to the public until next week. [emphasis added]

Here’s what’s been raised and reported by the other four major Senate candidates for the first quarter 2010 (with some rounding):

Michael Bennet $1,405,177

Jane Norton $816,000

Ken Buck $218,791

Tom Wiens $199,250

Totals include loans of $100,000 by Buck to his campaign and $98,319 by Wiens to his.

    Like his fundraising was far below expectations, or hopes.  I supposed it’s possible that it was so much better than expected that they want to hold off, but why risk some other story coming up to push off any good news?

    it’s gonna be HUGE

  3. Middle of the Road says:

    That’s 32 grand less than Romanoff raised last quarter for a Senate race.

    But he did say in an article yesterday that this quarter would be his best to date. Can’t wait to see what he considers “best.”

    like the one he did reaffirming his senate bid.

    in a manner of speaking. I mean, there’s no earthly reason to delay making public what people are assuming to be the case.

    I know we like to make light of things, but this campaign is quickly approaching Beauprez-like levels of political malpractice. What’s sad is that it didn’t have to be like this, at all.

    If the numbers suck, wouldn’t it be best to release them right now or tomorrow morning? The waiting till Monday is a little weird for bad numbers. If the numbers are really good, then getting everyone to expect awful would have an even bigger impact.

    On the flip side, after seeing how badly they handled the PhotoShop story, doing this the wrong way would not surprise me…

    If they sent Mike Riley over to the Secretary of the Senate’s office he could have gotten the report in person.
