Colorado Republican state treasurer candidate Polly Lawrence raises more than $90,000 for quarter

Republican state treasurer candidate Polly Lawrence plans to report raising more than $90,000 for the quarter just ended, her first in the race, her campaign said Friday, more than four times what any of the other Republicans in the crowded primary have so far reported raising in their initial quarters.

Lawrence received donations from 240 contributors, and 94 percent of them are from Colorado, her campaign said. She’ll report having more than $60,000 cash on hand for the quarter, which ended Sept. 30.

“People have opened their homes, their businesses and their wallets to help me bring my message of transparency and accountability to the four corners of Colorado,” Lawrence said in a statement. “Our first quarter in this race has been amazing, and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. I look forward to my continued travels across Colorado and to meeting many, many more people who are passionate about the future of our state.”
