Major General (retired) Irv Halter out raised his opponent, four term Congressman Doug Lamborn, by over $60,000 in the third quarter of 2013.
After a successful campaign announcement in July, Halter raised over $120,000 in his campaign’s first fiscal quarter. More than 370 individual donors pitched in to get Halter’s campaign off the ground. The donations were all from individuals, 95% of which call Colorado home.
“I’m not surprised I out raised Doug. I’m out in the community talking to constituents and they haven’t seen or heard from him. He’s lost touch with the Pikes Peak Region,” Halter said.
Currently, Halter for Congress has over $83,000 cash on hand, which is $12,500 more than Congressman Lamborn has in the bank.
Halter continued, “I’m proud of the support my campaign has earned from people all over the political spectrum. It is clear folks are fed up with the lack of leadership in Washington and tired of the career politicians.”
· Halter doubled Congressman Lamborn in fundraising: $123,000 to $60,770
· $46,000 or 77% of Congressman Lamborn’s money came from PAC’s
· Halter had 370 individual contributors compared to Lamborn’s 6 individual contributors.
