Amy Stephens' Q4 Report is Even WORSE Than You Thought

  • 17 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

Republican Amy Stephens quietly announced her Q4 (2013) fundraising numbers late on Friday afternoon, and it was no surprise as to why: With an embarrassingly-low $51,000 raised in her first full fundraising period, her campaign resembled a race horse bursting out of the starting gates and immediately falling face first into the dirt. 

We thought Stephens' fundraising numbers were bad already, but that was before we saw her official Quarterly Report filed with the FEC. Things are actually much worse for Stephens. Much, much worse. Here's the breakdown:

AMOUNT RAISED: $51,654
AMOUNT SPENT:    $3,462
CASH ON HAND:   $48,192
DEBTS & OBLIGATIONS:  $59,711

Yeah, that's not good. Stephens currently owes $11,000 MORE than she has in the bank. She obviously doesn't have to worry about paying back those loans anytime soon, but it creates a different kind of pressure if you aren't raising enough money to even cover your debts. Can Stephens really put together the resources for a serious statewide campaign?

  1. OK. Enough Amy for a while. I think we can all agree she's stick a fork in it done.And we all knpw whose fault it is. It's you, ColPols, and all those unflattering pictures!

    1. Too bad Amy's brother in law is not Charlie Black.  Then she could have raised lots of money, lost and still owed lots of money when it was over.

    2. Nah!  It probably should be pointed out how even a Republican as party line as Amy Stephens is not going to stand any chance in the rarified air of today's GOP brand of purist crazy!

      Amy's doing fantastic work here showing everyone why Colorado's GOP is a hopeless, lost cause!!!

        1. Well then, give credit where credit is truly due.  If I remember correctly, it was JeffcoBlue that came up with that awesome Amy airqotes thing . . . all Pols did was just run with it. 

    1. Well, since Moddy hasn't floated even a single electron here in excuse explanation of his former Senatorial favorite/BFFL, I pretty much have to conclude that his is also one of those unpaid bills/debts??!!??

      Like the man said, if you ever want one true friend in politics, you oughta' get yourself a dog . . .

      In the meantime, Moddy — lots of folks since the Bush collapse absolutley swear by catfood . . . at least until you get another paying gig? 

  2. Maybe her campaign "drive" can include driving around the state ad infinitum, charging her campaign $0.56 per mile plus motels and meals … nice motels and meals.  Hey, it's party time … remember the gubernatorial contest four years ago.

      1. hmmm… sounds like maybe you do know how stuff works. That would mean that you know that most of what you say here is nonsense from spin central. You probably also know that, unlike your Borg base, we won't buy it but imagine you are serving the cause by getting us all… yawn, sorry… riled up.

        1. Right-wing trolls will continue to lie, distort, corrupt, spin and obfuscate so long as there is breath in their bodies, They cannot do otherwise, evidently. To them, any lie in support of "the cause" is acceptible. Amoraility is its own reward.

  3. Pols, you admit that she doesn't have to pay this money back right away, so it's not an offsetting amount. Why are you being dishonest? Why are you spending so much time attacking Amy Stephens if she is a nobody?

    We see right through you.

    1. Sorry campaign finance reporting isn't treating your candidate well. Large amounts of debt are almost always taken as a detriment to a campaign. And as someone pointed out, money in campaigns leads to more money (and lack of money tends to lead to failure).

      Which leads to one of those other unfortunate truths: losing candidates with debt have a hard time repaying it.
