Rep. Mike Coffman, R-Aurora, is facing a strong challenge from Democrat Andrew Romanoff.

DENVER — One of next year’s most competitive congressional races has yet to truly engage — except on the fundraising front.

Democrat Andrew Romanoff, the former statehouse Speaker who’s challenging Rep. Mike Coffman, R-Aurora, next year, raised $524,771 in contributions during the year’s third fundraising quarter, according to a report filed Tuesday.

That brings his total contributions for the year to $1,545,367; overall, Romanoff has $1,334,500 in cash on hand.

On Monday, Coffman’s fundraising team, The Starboard Group, tweeted that Coffman raised more than $500,000 in the third quarter, bringing his cash on hand total to over $1.2 million.

On Tuesday, Starboard’s Kristin Strohm told FOX31 Denver that Coffman raised $500,091 in the third quarter, roughly $24,000 less than Romanoff (Coffman topped Romanoff in the second quarter).

Coffman now has $1,227,658 cash on hand.

According to Strohm, $376,291 of Coffman’s contributions come from individuals and $124,500 come from political action committee.

“Mike continues to enjoy broad-based support from Coloradans who are frustrated with Washington and believe in Mike’s strong leadership.”  said Strohm.

None of Romanoff’s contributions come from political action committees, according to his campaign.
