Mike Coffman has now sent his first fundraising letter out. In it, he states: “Colorado Campaign Finance reports are going to be reported at the end of this month so your most generous contribution… will send a clear message to challengers.”
Well, okay. But let’s not forget that though April 1 will be Coffman’s first report date as a Candidate for Governor, the letter is dated March 25th (it landed yesterday) and he’s had his “Exploratory Committee” launched for nearly two months (since February 1st).
Though political insiders are well aware that Coffman has not yet met his fundraising target for this opening period, the bigger question is this: just how much has the money flow dwindled since rumors of Bob Beauprez entering the race started circulating?
