That’s how much Republican Sen. Mike Enzi of Wyoming and primary challenger Liz Cheney together raised in the third quarter per registered Republican voter in their state.
The two Republicans together raised $1,875,881 in July, August and September. Cheney, a daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, raised $1,027,570 in the third quarter compared with $848,311 for Enzi, who’s seeking a fourth term. (See my Political Capital post here for a detailed look at their sources of funding.)
There are 166,408 registered Republicans in Wyoming, the nation’s least populous state, according to figures from state election officials that are current as of Oct. 1. So the two candidates together raised about $11.27 per Republican voter.
If the Enzi-Cheney fundraising figures don’t appear eye-popping in the abstract, consider this: In Florida, which had 4,166,642 registered Republicans as of last month, two Republicans together raising $11.27 per registered Republican would have collected about $47 million during the three-month period.
The Wyoming Republican primary is next August.
