Lamborn Raises $85,730

  • 9 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols


Republican Rep. Doug Lamborn finally woke up from his fundraising slumber, raising $85,730 in Q3 – more than double what he had raised in the first two quarters combined. Lamborn has $115,248 cash on hand, but outstanding debts of $59,147.

Also notable in Lamborn’s Q3 report is that the infamous donation/non-donation from gaming company IGT still doesn’t appear as having been returned.

  1. This is good news for Lamborn supporters.  I would have loved for Lamborn to have posted a crumby report, but it is what it is.  This race isn’t going to be a slam-dunk for anyone that’s running.

    Slow night here on Pols, BTW

  2. I would say this is less impressive than Crank’s numbers, but the true test will be the current quarter.  This breathes a little life into Lamborn’s political career.  If Rayburn can out-raise both Crank and Lamborn, maybe he also has a chance.  I see this upcoming quarter with Lamborn on top, then Crank, and Rayburn in a distant third. 

  3. Compare Doug’s numbers to others in congress…. Freshman and not… These are very poor numbers. Particularly when compared to Crank who raised 77K in 7 weeks… Full diary to follow.

    1. If Crank raised nearly as much in only 2/3 the amount of time, when Lamborn had the whole quarter and wasn’t ‘supposedly’ starting a campaign from scratch, then we can expect Lamborn to get creamed in Q4.

  4. Two things I see in his numbers that indicate his weakness and that he actually has a SERIOUS cash flow problem.

    1.  How much did his cash on hand go up from the 2nd to the 3rd quarter?  $65,000!  He had $50,000 on hand at the end of June, and only $115,000 at the end of September.  Crank added a whole lot more money to his available cash than did Lamborn.

    2.  Look at Lamborn’s UNPAID FUNDRAISING COMMISSIONS to The RAINMAKERS of $11,657.46, which remained unchanged from the end of June to the end of September.  I don’t know how long a vendor can not demand payment from a Congressman for commissions that are owed, but, if Lamborn had paid up his bills, his cash on hand would have gone up by barely $50,000 from the end of June to the end of September. 

    The big story will be what happens for the last quarter of the year.  Clearly, Rayburn’s entry into the race will help Lamborn with fundraising, as well as divide the pool of available dollars that the anti-Lamborn camp could have instead thrown behind Crank, the only contender who realistically can beat Lamborn. 

  5. you say Crank is the only contender who realistically can beat Lamborn.

    gosh, you could beat him.

    ……………..

    I’ve been trying to download Doug’s speech in defense of Rush from his House.gov website.
    Even this doesn’t work. 

  6. Don’t be fooled into thinking Crank has a vast supply of financial supporters. He has been hard at work lining up his $77K ever since he lost the 06 primary. So one could say his $77K was a 9 month report, not a 6 week report.

    Once he announced, he pulled the trigger and deposited his checks. Watch the next quarterly reporting as I suspect his well is drying up quickly.

    I personally know of people who previously supported Crank in the 06 primary who are now supporting Doug. One person told me he responded to Crank’s fundraising letter by telling him, “No, you are only challenging Lamborn due to personal ambition and pride. I will be supporting Doug Lamborn.”

    My prediction is that Jeff Crank will get FEWER votes in the primary than he got last time.

    You heard it here first.
