Another Big Haul For Romanoff: $600,000 in Q1

A press release from Democratic CD-6 candidate Andrew Romanoff moments ago:

Andrew Romanoff, candidate for Colorado’s 6th Congressional District, raised $603,520 in the first quarter of 2014, bringing his total contributions to more than $2.6 million. Romanoff ended the quarter with nearly $2.1 million in cash on hand.

Romanoff recorded his strongest fundraising period to date. FEC reports indicate he has now outpaced every other House challenger in Colorado history.

“Coloradans want to grow the economy and strengthen the middle class,” Romanoff said. “That means creating clean-energy jobs, making college more affordable, ensuring equal pay for equal work – exactly the kind of priorities I’ll pursue in Congress.”

Romanoff does not accept contributions from special-interest groups. His support reflects a broad cross-section of Coloradans:

The campaign has received contributions from 10,043 supporters to date, including 4,020 donors in the first quarter of 2014.
More than 91 percent of the campaign’s first-quarter donors live in Colorado.
More than 84 percent of the campaign’s first-quarter contributions were $100 or less.
The campaign has raised $2,607,982 to date and ended the first quarter with $2,098,619 on hand.

We haven't heard from GOP incumbent Rep. Mike Coffman, widely known as a fundraising powerhouse, but Romanoff beat Coffman in the final two quarters last year–a momentum-changing development all by itself that this latest strong performance will only reinforce. It's worth restating how Romanoff's strong fundraising comes despite self-imposed handicaps we ourselves have criticized, and is even more impressive as a result.

We'll update when we hear from Coffman, who won't do himself any favors by coming in second again.

    What?! I thought our priorities were praying to the 1%, sucking the last drop of oil from the dirt, keeping science out of the classroom and insuring that women are barefoot and pregnant.  That's why we elected Coffman in the first place, right?

  3. I believe it was Mod who asked the other day about money being "bad" according to liberals. This is an example of solid grassroots money. 91% from Colorado. 84% under $100.

    This is the kind of support that drove Obama to victory, and I'm glad to see that Romanoff has somehow captured that for his district.

    Impressive but I hope he has enough funding to meet the GOTP money deluge that will come. Fingers crossed.

    I just hope he saves some money so he can buy a house.
