Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper brought in more than $151,000 between May 29 and June 11, bringing his total fundraising to almost $3 million.
Meanwhile, GOP candidate Bob Beauprez loaned his campaign another $69,000, and topped the other Republican candidates in the most recent two weeks.
Former congressman and 2010 gubernatorial candidate Tom Tancredo has outraised his GOP competitors overall. Secretary of State Scott Gessler came in second to Beauprez during the filing period. Former state Senate Minority Leader Mike Kopp continues to trail the pack.
