Michael Bennet Widens His Fund-Raising Lead With Another Million-Dollar Quarter

Senator Michael Bennet became the lastof the major state-wide candidates to announce his third quarter fund-raising totals Tuesday. As expected, Bennet widened his fund-raising lead over Democratic and Republican opponents.

From the Denver Post:

The campaign raised just more than $1 million from 1,641 donors. About 72 percent of those donors call Colorado home, according to campaign stats.

The AP adds:

Bennet's brisk fundraising pace puts him ahead of his many challengers. But the race has gotten more complicated since the last campaign disclosure.

Democrat Andrew Romanoff of Denver plans to report more than $250,000. And on the Republican side, former Lt. Gov. Jane Norton will report more than $550,000 raised last quarter.
