Freshman U.S. Rep. Betsy Markey
raised a record-breaking ton of cash this quarter for her re-election in 2010.
And despite announcing his CD 4 candidacy to oppose her mere months after she was elected, University of Colorado Board of Regents Vice Chair Tom Lucero
, a Republican, has been relatively invisible -- at least when he wasn't ducking impropriety charges on the stand in the Ward Churchill
trial. Lucero's fund raising, like his record of experience, will surely be no match for Markey's.
