(Boulder, CO) – Eric Weissmann, candidate for Congress in Colorado's 2nd Congressional District, today announced a first quarter fundraising haul of $138,912. Coloradans made up more than 85 percent of contributors. Weissmann has raised more money in two months since entering the race than was raised in the entire campaign by the 2010 Republican nominee.
"I am thankful to the many donors who have invested in my campaign," said Weissmann. "These figures demonstrate broad support for our campaign's message of promoting economic opportunity; building a more friendly jobs climate; and downsizing the size, cost, and scope of the federal government.
"Our fundraising success to date shows that Colorado Republicans and independents are hungry to support a candidate who can beat Jared Polis and make a difference by bringing meaningful change to Washington, D.C."
