Without providing details, US Representative Lauren Boebert announced Thursday that her re-election campaign raised more than $ 750,000 in the second quarter of 2021.
Add that to the $ 845,869 his campaign brought to the Federal Election Commission for the first three months of this year, and his total fundraising since taking office in early January is nearly $ 1.6 million. .
“Ordinary Americans See Through (Democrats) have woken up bull shit and are talking loudly with their wallets,” Boebert said in a press release. “Thousands of generous people support my campaign because they know that I will always stand up for our freedom and our God-given rights.”
Details of her second-quarter campaign finances, such as that of leading Democratic Party candidate Kerry Donovan, who is vying for the right to challenge Boebert for the seat next year, have yet to be filed with the FEC. The deadline to do so is July 15th.
As a result, it is not known how Boebert spent his money or where it came from.
It also doesn’t say how she handled a March contribution of $ 11,900 from Telluride-based investor Michael Harvey. The maximum donation allowed under the Federal Election Finances Act is $ 2,800 per election, whether for a primary or general election.
Boebert’s latest campaign report filed in April only includes refunds of campaign contributions to two other donors for a total of $ 1,793.
On Wednesday, Donovan said he has raised about $ 457,000 in the past three months, for a total of about $ 1.1 million since the start of the year. This money came from more than 17,500 donors, including contributors from the 29 counties in the district.
That makes the state senator from Senate District 5, whose district includes Delta County, the leading Democratic fundraiser vying for her party’s nomination to run for the seat.
Three other Democratic candidates running with Donovan raised only a fraction of that amount.
These candidates are State Representative Donald Valdez de La Jara, who raised approximately $ 67,000; Pueblo’s Tafoya Soledad Sandoval, which grossed around $ 45,500; and Colin Wilhelm of Glenwood Springs, who has about $ 14,000.
