Colorado senate candidate 'willing to rent' dog for campaign cash

Colorado Senate candidate Andrew Romanoff (D) joked Tuesday afternoon on Twitter about making financial sacrifices to fund his campaign.

He said:

This morning a radio host asked me, "Are you going to sell your dog?" Absolutely not! But I am willing to rent him for a while ...

Romanoff, the Speaker of the Colorado House of Representatives, seeks to defeat Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) in the Democratic primary. He recently sold his house in Denver in order to loan the campaign $325,000. Bennet's fundraising, meanwhile, has totaled $7.5 million.

The primary is August 10.
