Hickenlooper Brings In Nearly $1 Million 1/1-4/30

UPDATE: Tom Tancredo checks in feebly:

Approximately to scale.

Approximately to scale.

The Denver Post's Lynn Bartels reports, "Governor Bartender" is raking in the tips:

Hickenlooper raised $984,564 from 3,952 donors, more than half of whom are new contributors, and more than 90 percent of whom are from Colorado, his campaign reported. More than two-thirds of those who contributed were grassroots donors who gave less than $150.

“We are very humbled to receive this level of support from across the state and remain committed to keeping Colorado’s economy healthy,” Hickenlooper said.

FOX 31's Eli Stokols puts Gov. John Hickenlooper's reported $1.65 million cash on hand in perspective:

Hickenlooper had $889,000 cash on hand by the April 2010 reporting deadline, which was the previous record.

In 2006, Republican Bob Beauprez had $834,000 cash on hand, the second highest figure.

We're awaiting more fundraising numbers due out today–Bob Beauprez is claiming some $443,000 raised on Twitter, but at least $200,000 of that is reportedly self-funded. We'll update as more numbers come in, but we don't expect any of Hickenlooper's opponents to be even remotely close.

    Come on amateurs, there's a primary. Whoever wins it will have all the money they need to take down Governor Bartender.

    Also Pols, you owe Greg Brophy props for Gov. Bartender. :)

    ha nice spin. Shame those pesky contribution limits will be used up in a GOP primary. You'll need to Koch Brothers to bail you out of this one too.
