The Denver mayor’s race topped a million dollars in contributions on February 1st. The race will be a multi-million dollar battle with bond trader Chris Romer likely to lead the pack.
A new candidate who managed to collect more than $50,000 is attorney Theresa Spahn. In fact, she now leads Councilman-at-large Doug Linkhart.
Fundraising is only one part of the contest, but it can purchase considerable name identification and early favorability. Since Romer has high-name identification due to his father, having raised nearly a half million dollars makes him frontrunner.
