Democrat Jason Crow plans to report raising more than $1 million for the just-completed second fundraising quarter of the year, more than any candidate in the battleground 6th Congressional District has raised for the same period in previous elections, including five-term Republican incumbent U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman.
Crow, who isn’t taking contributions from corporate political action committees, announced Wednesday that he raised $1,003,588 for the quarter ending June 30 and had $1,295,458 on hand. His campaign said that 95 percent of this quarter’s contributions are from individual donors.
Coffman reported $1.36 million in the bank at the end of a pre-primary reporting period a month ago but had yet to file his quarterly report at press time. Reports are due to the Federal Election Commission by July 15.
“We’re going to win this race because the grassroots energy in this district is ready for a new generation of servant leadership,” Crow said in a statement. “Coloradans are ready to tell Mike Coffman that you don’t need corporate Super PAC dollars to win a campaign. You just need the better ideas and the willingness to put people first.”
