Coors Outraises Perlmutter in First Quarter

April 10, 2012

GOP challenger Joe Coors raised nearly $450,000 in the first quarter

DENVER — GOP Congressional challenger and Golden businessman Joe Coors announced today that he raised $449,297 in the first fundraising quarter of 2012, outraising incumbent Congressman Ed Perlmutter by over $75,000.

Coors is challenging Perlmutter in Colorado’s 7th Congressional district.

The Associated Press reported that Perlmutter raised $371,600 in the first quarter.

It is rare for Congressional challengers to outraise incumbents, especially by such a large sum.

Coors announced his bid to unseat incumbent Democratic Congressman Ed Perlmutter on January 31, meaning he only had two months to raise money in the quarter.

“The outpouring of support encourages me to do everything I can to best represent our district in Congress,” said Coors in a press release. “I’m pleased to see that the campaign continues to build broad based support and gains positive momentum as we look forward to November.”

Perlmutter’s campaign has yet to release his first quarter fundraising total. In the fourth quarter of 2011, Perlmutter raised $212,321.

The 7th Congressional district race is considered one of the most competitive in the state.

    God willing, this will be the year that the out of touch, union thug Perlmutter is finally forced to seek employment in the private sector. Yep, that very same private sector he and his REgressive buds have worked so hard to destroy. On second thought, a dollar will get you a donut, I guarantee he’ll land in some cushy, union thug job.
