Roughly $300,000 has poured into the 2018 U.S. House race between Republican incumbent Scott Tipton and his Democratic challenger, state Rep. Diane Mitsch Bush, over the past three months.
Tipton, of Cortez, raised $150,000 between July 1 and Sept. 30, spending about $35,000 over that span, leaving him with $382,000 cash on hand heading into October.
Of those donations, a big chunk came from political action committees. That included contributions from the Freeport-McMoran Copper & Gold Inc. Citizenship Committee, United Airlines Inc. PAC, Financial Planning Association PAC, and Lockheed Martin Corporation Employees PAC.
