The latest Denver mayoral finance reports confirm there are three front running candidates at the start of February: Chris Romer reporting $228,000, James Mejia reporting $160,000 and Michael Hancock the same amount.
Hancock and Mejia represent candidates more inside the city political system and Romer outside. They reflect the city’s three ethnic groups, although they are mostly similar in ideology – center left.
Doug Linkhart is the most liberal candidate and only raised $38,000. Carol Boigon, a possible sleeper due to fundraising potential, raised only $52,000.
