In the year before the election, with no reliable polls to illuminate the landscape, fundraising becomes a proxy for political support. Senator Michael Bennet’s $1.4 million dollar 1st quarter 2009 take is impressive.
Governor Ritter, the embattled incumbent who appointed Bennet, will be lucky to raise a million dollars throughout all of 2009.
Not surprising, Bennet drew from well-off families, friends and business acquaintances. But, he also attracted big money from early investors in political fast starters, much of it out-of-state.
