CO-SEN: Hickenlooper's Senate fundraising outpaces presidential campaign

Democrat John Hickenlooper’s latest fundraising numbers show that the former Colorado governor has caught more attention from donors as a top candidate in a critical Senate race than when he was one of two dozen presidential contenders.

Hickenlooper raised $2.1 million in the more than five weeks he has been running to take on GOP Sen. Cory Gardner, his campaign announced Tuesday. That’s a faster fundraising rate than Hickenlooper posted as a presidential candidate, when four months of effort raised less than $3.2 million. The fundraising numbers were first reported by The Colorado Sun.

Hickenlooper jumped into the Senate race in late August, and his fundraising numbers reflect totals through Sept. 30. The figures do not include any transfers from his presidential campaign, a spokesperson confirmed. He ended the quarter with nearly $1.7 million on hand, and 95 percent of the contributions were $200 or less, his campaign said.

“Each and every person who chipped in recognizes that Colorado needs a new independent voice, a senator who reflects our values and will work to bring people together and get things done on issues that matter to Coloradans — like expanding access and controlling costs for health care, and tackling climate change head on,” Hickenlooper said in a statement.
