BOOM! Gardner Barely Cracks $2 Million in Q4

  • 9 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols
Yes, those numbers stink.

Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Yuma) finally reported his Q4 2019 fundraising numbers this afternoon. They are positively shocking.

Gardner raised just more than $2 million in Q4 — or about 40% less than Democratic challenger John Hickenlooper ($2.8 million raised in Q4). Gardner’s $2,030,797 end-of-year filing includes $334,000 in committee transfers, meaning that his campaign only actually raised about $1.63 from actual contributors.

The obvious takeaway here is bad news for Gardner. In Arizona, incumbent Sen. Martha McSally DOUBLED Gardner’s Q4 fundraising. Like Gardner, McSally is running for re-election in one of the most competitive Senate races in the country in 2020. Unlike Gardner, Republican donors appear to be interested in helping McSally get re-elected. Gardner has $7.7 million cash on hand after five years in the U.S. Senate; McSally has $7.6 million in the bank and has only been in office for one year (she was selected to fill the end of John McCain’s term).

We’ll leave the last word for Gardner’s own campaign, which must be getting dizzy from so much ridiculous spin. Gardner Campaign Manager Casey Contres is calling his boss’s Q4 fundraising “historic,” which is certainly true — just not in a good way.

    1. Cory is still ready to fight and win.

       

      If you say #coverupcory is ready to fight and win, it must be true.  Just ask still-Congressman Mike Coffman, Attorney General George Brauchler, and Governor Cynthia Coffman.

      1. Someone's sphincter muscle just tightened up went into a state of death grip while reading Nutter's endorsement (written while on the taxpayer's clock).  

        1. You'd think a true believer like Poddy would aspire to becoming a mighty Galtian anarcho-capitalist hero by making his way in the private sector, but no. Sic semper hothouse flowers, I guess. *shrug*

  1. up is down.
    Russia is our President's best friend. We are out with UK.

    There is no crime. Article 2 is unlimited free pass.

    I can't be bothered with fundraising – because the President has got my back.

  2. But …. I thought Cory was fundraising with the *resident as a "special guest" for the Trump victory camp ["Gardner is scheduled to be one of the special guests at a New York high-dollar GOP fundraiser this weekend"]AND he got Trump to send a fundraising letter on his behalf.  All that and he STILL only got a cumulative $2 million?
