Republican Lauren Boebert edges past Dem challenger Kerry Donovan in quarterly fundraising

U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert pulled in more than $700,000 for the most recent fundraising quarter.

Kerry Donovan, who plans to report raising more than $630,000 in contributions for the three-month period, their campaigns said Thursday.
