Democratic U.S. Senate nominee John Hickenlooper plans to report raising $22.6 million in the just-completed third quarter, smashing all previous fundraising records for Colorado campaigns for any office.
The former two-term governor, who is challenging Republican U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner’s bid for a second term in one of this year’s most contested Senate races, had $7.2 million on hand at the end of the quarter ending Sept. 30, his campaign said Wednesday.
“Coloradans from every corner of our state are fired up and ready to flip this seat because they are fed up with Cory Gardner’s lockstep support of Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell,” Hickenlooper said in as statement.
“With the generous backing of this grassroots army we’re going to bring change to a broken Washington and get to work getting our country out of this crisis.”
