The former state House Speaker is lagging in the fundraising race, despite having former President Clinton send out an e-mail pitch. Romanoff had raised $1.6 million and had $464,000 in cash on hand at the end of the second quarter, according to fundraising reports.

Bennet had raised almost $7.5 million and had about $2.5 million cash on hand.

Romanoff made light of the fact he had to sell his house, telling the paper: ā€œIā€™m never home anyway.ā€

A June Denver Post/Survey USA poll had Bennet leading Romanoff by 17 points.
