Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mike Johnston plans to report that his first-quarter fundraising topped $625,000, a sum his campaign says sets a modern record. The former state senator from Denver said Monday he raised more campaign cash in a quarter than any other state candidate has in a non-election year since the advent of strict campaign finance limits in 2005 — and he did it without accepting contributions from political action committees.
