Colorado remains a top priority for the presidential campaign as the candidates continue to visit the state to stump for votes.
Denver’s mayoral underdog tradition is well known at this point. So the question we should ask ourselves, CBSDenver.com blogger Dominic Dezzutti writes, is how the candidate with the lead in the general election, the biggest endorsements and the most money somehow lost this race?
June 7 is the date of the runoff election in Denver’s mayor’s race, and with only a short time to go before the race’s end things are getting heated.
A mayoral endorsement is typically a low-key news conference, but not on Tuesday when former Mayor Federico Pena announced he’s backing Chris Romer in the runoff election.
A second Denver mayoral candidate has received the endorsement from someone who used to have the job.
In 4 weeks voting begins in Denver’s mayoral race. Ten people are on the ballot and three candidates now have ads on television. But for many voters this remains a sleepy race.
“I am assuming the average Denverite knows more about the new Denver Nuggets acquired from the New York Knicks than they do about the 18 people running for mayor of Denver,” CBSDenver.com blogger Dominic Dezzutti writes.
