2018 Who’s funding Lew Gaiter’s campaign?

Answer: Not many people.

In his bid for the Republican nomination for governor, Larimer County Commissioner Lew Gaiter had raised about $4,000 from people other than himself after putting $7,000 of his own money into his campaign, according to the National Institute on Money in State Politics.

Stewart and Cheri Myott, of Fort Collins, each gave him $575. Stewart works in the communications and electronics business. A dozen or so others gave him between $10 and $575.

During a one-on-one debate in September with Democratic gubernatorial candidate Erik Underwood, Gaiter said he was likely raising the least amount of money in the race.

The next filing deadline is May 7.
