Mike Coffman, Jason Crow raise more than a half-million dollars in Colorado congressional race

More than a half-million dollars poured into the race between Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman and his Democrat opponent, Jason Crow, over the past several months, setting up another expensive campaign for the 6th Congressional District seat in the Denver metro.

Coffman reported getting $352,504 in contributions between April 1 and June 30 while spending about $107,000. Of the money raised by the Aurora congressman, about half — just over $170,000 — came from political action committees.

Among those PAC contributions was $1,500 from the Rolls-Royce North America PAC, $4,000 from the Honeywell International PAC, $1,000 from the Lockheed Martin PAC, $2,000 from the Boeing Political Action Committee and $1,000 General Dynamics Corporation Political Plan. All are involved in the defense industry, and Coffman sits on the House Armed Services Committee.

Coffman also got $2,000 from the DaVita Inc. PAC, $2,000 from the Comcast Corporation & NBCUniversal PAC, and $5,000 from the Deloitte PAC.

He had $505,572 on hand at the end of last month.
