Colorado’s Ritter raises $400K in second quarter
DENVER, Colorado – Gov. Bill Ritter says he’s raised over $400,000 for his re-election campaign in the last three months.
His campaign released the information to supporters in an e-mail Wednesday. It said there were 1,299 donors and the average contribution was $315.
The campaign didn’t provide a list of donors. Campaign manager David Kenney said they would be included in the official campaign finance report, still being compiled.
Ritter, a Democrat, has until July 15 to file his report on second-quarter donations.
The fundraising news comes three days before another potential Republican challenger – Sen. Josh Penry – announces whether he’ll enter the race. Former congressman Scott McInnis, and Evergreen businessman Dan Maes are already seeking the GOP nomination.
