Rep. Jared Polis (D) “put more than $250,000 of his own money into his campaign during its first few weeks.” He reported $206,000 on hand.

“Entrepreneur Noel Ginsburg (D) raised $102,000, plus an additional $100,000 he loaned his campaign. As the first candidate to enter the Democratic race, he’s raised a total of $355,755” and reproted $191,000 on hand.

“District Attorney George Brauchler (R) raised only about $190,000 in the past three months. That includes nearly $13,000 leftover from his last DA’s race. And he’s got less money in the bank [$142,000] than all but one of the nine candidates who have raised over $10,000.”

Former state Sen. Mike Johnston (D) reported $651,000 on hand to former state Treasurer Cary Kennedy’s $226,000. (KUNC)
