Democratic Senate candidate Mark Udall posted his best fundraising quarter of the campaign, raising $2.7 million through Sept. 30, about $800,000 more than his Republican rival, Bob Schaffer.Interestingly, though, the Denver Post also reports that Bob Schaffer has $2.7 million on hand, compared to $545,000 for Mark Udall. Schaffer needs to deploy that cash advantage strategically and aggressively to give his campaign any shot at pulling out victory on November 4.
Schaffer collected $1.9 million in the quarter that ended Sept. 30, his campaign reported. That brings to $6.6 million the total the former congressman has raised.
Oh, and Politicker notes that "Udall's campaign did not immediately respond to a request for documentation of their third-quarter numbers." And the reports from both campaigns are not yet posted up on the FEC disclosure site, either.
In the meantime, a few questions for review:
- Will there be any contributions for Mark Udall from Jodie Evans or far-Left Hollywood celebrities?
- Did Udall visit retired sweatshop owner Susie Tompkins-Buell for more money on his latest swing to California?
- Did tax cheat Charlie Rangel's PAC add more to the $12,000 Udall's Senate campaign has already received?
