Businessman Wiens backs Candidate Wiens to the tune of $540,000

Roll Call confirms that GOP candidate for the U.S. Senate Tom Wiens accounted for the lion’s share of his impressive fourth quarter campaign cash haul. Wiens reported he pulled in an impressive $728,000 over the last three months of 2009. More than half a million dollars came from his own bank accounts.

Democratic incumbent Michael Bennet dominated the quarter with $1.1 million. GOP frontrunner in the race Jane Norton raked in $550,000. Republican Weld County D.A. Ken Buck surprised campaign watchers by drawing only $40,000.
