Print More

Today is the deadline for congressional candidates to file year-end reports for spending and fundraising through Dec. 31, 2017.

Incumbents have plenty of cash in the bank, though a few challengers are making inroads.

Here’s look.

  • 7th CD Republican Rep. Mike Coffman has $839,000 in cash after raising nearly $243,000 in the last quarter of the year. Democratic candidate Jason Crow raised more than $274,000 and has $590,000 in the bank, outpacing other D competitors.
  • GOP incumbent Rep. Doug Lamborn, of the deep-red 5th CD in Colorado Springs, reported raising almost $152,000, with $515,000 in the bank. Meanwhile, state Sen. Owen Hill raised about $63,000 for the quarter, and has more than $217,000 in the bank. Darryl Glenn, one of his three challengers, transferred $233,000 from his failed 2016 Senate contest, and raised about $27,000 in the final quarter.
  • Democrat Joe Neguse raised nearly $162,000 for in his bid to succeed 2nd CD Rep. Jared Polis. He has more than $278,000 in the bank.
  • In the 3rd CD, GOP Rep. Scott Tipton has six times the cash in the bank as former state Rep. Diane Mitsch Bush, a Democrat. He raised $138,000 in the last quarter to her almost $76,000.
  • In the 7th CD, Democratic Rep. Ed Perlmutter raised nearly $252,000 and has more than $833,000 in the bank as he awaits a GOP challenger. Perlmutter briefly ran for governor, but dropped out when Polis brought his money bags to that race.
  • GOP Rep. Ken Buck raised about $52,000, and has $385,000 in the bank. Buck has a couple of Democratic and one Republican challenger. The filing for Democrat Chase Kohne  is tough to figure, listing a total of about $5,ooo raised through the year, but nearly $27,000 in the last quarter. Kohne has loaned his campaign $10,000. Meanwhile, Lone Tree Republican James Gunning appears to have loaned his campaign $50,000.
  • Democratic Rep. Diana DeGette brought in $121,000, but she’s spent more than $500,000 and has only $65,000 in the bank. A few other Ds have filed to run in the 1st CD, most notably Saira Rao, a lawyer, entrepreneur and activist. Rao won’t have to file a report until April.

Here’s a look at filing summaries.
