Ritter Raises $3 Million

  • 16 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

That’s a total amount, of course. Bill Ritter’s campaign announced today that it had raised another $197,000 from Aug. 31 – Sept. 13. Click below for the full press release from the Ritter campaign…

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Bill Ritter has crossed the $3 million fundraising threshold – another positive sign of Ritter’s statewide appeal and forward momentum.

In the Aug. 31 to Sept. 13 filing period, Ritter raised $197,000 and had $86,000 cash on hand. Through Sept. 13, Ritter has raised $2.9 million. He reached the $3 million mark on Tuesday, Sept. 19.

Ritter, Denver’s former District Attorney, set a new statewide fundraising record in August with a $606,000 total. “Bill’s fundraising strength is simply a reflection of how well he’s connecting to voters across the state,” campaign manager Greg Kolomitz said. “Bill has a clear plan about how to lead Colorado in the 21st century. That plan is called The Colorado Promise – the promise that we will leave our children and grandchildren a better Colorado.

“Voters are tired of negative attack ads and partisan, Washington-style politics. They want someone like Bill Ritter who will solve problems and make Colorado a national leader in education, health care, jobs and renewable energy,” Kolomitz said.

Fundraising Total: $2.9 million:

— January to March: $465,000
— April: $156,000
— May: $200,000
— June: $360,000
— July 1-12: $121,000
— July 13-26: $106,000
— July 27-Aug. 30: $606,000
— Aug. 31-Sept. 13: $197,000

  1. And Ritter is taking this one home.  I wonder what Frances Owens is going to do without being able to use the $3 million Governor’s garage for personal parties anymore?

  2. What does your comment mean “What is Billy Boy going to do for a Job?”  Are you sure you have the right candidate?  Bill Ritter is going to be Governor of our state.  Count on it and the race and raising of money isn’t over yet!!

    1. I think he meant Bill Owens.  I hear he is gonna be a Carny – barking out to passersby to come and throw baseballs at milk bottles or something…

      One Bill in the Govs office is enough.  I am voting for BOB.

      1. I heard the Republican’s have a secret weapon to take back the house and senate in 2008. 

        The plan is to get Bill Owens to change his party affiliation to Democrat, become Chair of the State Democratic party and do for them what he did for the Republicans in this state.

        Rock on Bill!!!

      2. will be competing for an administration job.  I think either would qualify for the job of Undersecretary of the Department of Bush Blunders.  That is, after they get their certification from The Michael Brown School for Republican Appointees.

  3. Am I reading that wrong, or does that mean that, in total, the Ritter campaign only has $86,000 cash-on-hand?  I applaud his fundraising prowess, but that number’s kinda scarily low.  I’m sure he’s pre-paid for tv, but still.

    1. Even if he’s prepaid for everything. Doesn’t he need to save some money to respond to that blockbuster Beauprez press conference?

      The fact that Ritter raised over $600K in July-August is astounding. In retrospect that month was clearly the beginning of the end for Both Ways Bob.

      1. Just because he’s pre-paid the time doesn’t mean he picked the ad content back in June.  He’s got enough banked TV time to respond to anything BothWays might come up with – you know, if he were to actually hold a press conference at the announced time some day.
