Colorado Republican Rep. Cory Gardner raised $2.7 million in his bid to unseat Democratic incumbent Mark Udall in the second quarter, nearly double the amount he raised in the previous quarter.
Gardner got into the race with $800,000 cash on hand and raised $1.4 million by early April. With his new totals, he has $3.4 million cash on hand.
Udall has yet to report his second quarter tally, but likely benefited from a last-minute fundraising appearance by President Obama this week, even though Udall himself stayed in Washington and didn’t appear at the private lunch in downtown Denver.
