Darryl Glenn’s challenge: Rival Michael Bennet boasts $6.1 million on hand to start July

Democratic U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet starts the race against his Republican rival with more than $6 million in the bank, a huge cash advantage exacerbated by Darryl Glenn's poor fundraising to date.

The Bennet campaign will announce Monday that it raised $2.7 million in the second quarter, boosting the Denver lawmaker's cash-on-hand to $6.1 million as of July 1.

The fundraising total is $1 million more than Bennet posted through June 8 in the pre-primary report, but he continued to spend big dollars. His cash-on-hand June 8 stood at $5.7 million.

Glenn starts July essentially broke. His campaign reported June 8 that it only raised $106,510 since April 1 and had just $50,198 on hand with $16,500 in debt, according to federal campaign finance filings.

In the final days before the June 28 GOP primary, however, he received a $50,300 boost from major donors of $1,000 or more, thanks to support from political allies of Sen. Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin. Only $6,400 of that money came from Colorado.
