From Fox 31:
Ken Buck, one of four Republicans vying to unseat Democratic U.S. Sen. Mark Udall next year, raised about $228,000 in the seven weeks between his campaign announcement and the end of the year’s third fundraising quarter.
Combined with the money he already had in the bank, Buck ended the quarter with a total of $300,282; his campaign reports having $246,554 cash on hand…
…State Sen. Owen Hill, who entered the race in early July at the start of the quarter, reported Tuesday afternoon that his campaign raised $250,411 between the campaign launch and the end of September.
That brings Hill’s cash on hand total to roughly $190,000, according to the campaign.
Of the two reports, Hill's $250k is the more important figure. After a strong 2010 Senate run, Ken Buck was expected to be able to raise a significant amount of money for his campaign, but Owen Hill was certainly an unknown entity in that regard. Raising $250k should be enough to answer questions about his viability as a candidate for U.S. Senate after Buck entered the race.
