Without Opposition, Rep. Franks Continues Low Key Fundraising; This Quarter's Celebrity Contributor: Jerry Colangelo

Arizona Rep. Trent Franks (R-CD8) has no opposition for his re-election effort - from either Republicans or Democrats.  Therefore, his campaign finance filings are mostly ho-hum documents.  However, he seems to spice up each one a little with a "name" contributor.  Last quarter, it was former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld;  this time, Jerry Colangelo makes an appearance.

Franks raised approximately $50,000 and spent approximately $54,000 during the first three months of 2014.  His cash on hand on April 1 is $30,584.31.

On January 31, 2014, the former owner of the Phoenix Suns and managing general partner of the Arizona Diamondbacks, contributed $1,000 to the conservative representing the West Valley.  Colangelo has not contributed to Franks before, and this is only the 2nd contribution he has made to a federal candidate in this election cycle. (The other is to South Carolina Senator Tim Scott.)
