Shafroth Raises Another $237,000

2nd Congressional District candidate maintains fund-raising pace in one of the nation’s most expensive primaries.CD-2 hopeful Will Shafroth announced today another steady quarter of fund-raising, bringing in $236,760 in contributions for the final quarter of 2007.

It brings his total for the campaign to nearly $750,000 since his candidacy announcement in April. Though Shafroth is the lesser known of the three candidates for the office, he’s shown that he can go toe-to-toe with them on the fund-raising circuit.

The other two candidates are former state Senate President Joan Fitz-Gerald and businessman-philanthropist Jared Polis. Neither of these two has yet released fourth-quarter totals. The deadline for reporting to the Federal Election Commission is January 31, 2008, and the reports are usually available to the public two weeks later.

In a release about the contributions, Shafroth said:

With 484 total contributors:
99 percent of the contributors were individuals
45 percent of the donors gave $200 or less
97 percent of the contributors were for the primary.

The Shafroth campaign is now reporting about $520,00 on hand. The CD-2 race is proving to be one of the most expensive primaries in the nation.
