Hickenlooper has fundraising edge over Beauprez

DENVER (AP) - Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper has a fundraising edge against Republican gubernatorial challenger Bob Beauprez in their first head-to-head month.

Hickenlooper's campaign says the governor raised about $353,000, while Beauprez's campaign reported about $261,000. It's the first fundraising report since Beauprez became the Republican nominee on June 24.

The reporting period covers June 26 to July 26. Hickenlooper continues to have a big fundraising lead overall. He's raised about $3.4 million, and has $768,682 of it on hand.

He has also made a handful of television ad buys for the fall. Beauprez has $235,413 cash on hand. He spent most of the money he had raised previously on a four-way Republican primary. Recent polls have shown the race to be tied.
