Keyser paid $140,250 on petition signatures
to political consulting firm Clear Creek Strategies through the end of March . The 16,067 signatures
he submitted overall allowed him to clear the threshold in the six other districts. He argued that clerical errors resulted in too many signatures
being tossed and a judge agreed. Keyser fell short by 86 signatures
in Colorado's 3rd Congressional District, according to Colorado's Secretary of State, which reviewed his petition.
