Colorado Senate candidate sells home and loans money to his campaign
Democratic Senate candidate
Andrew Romanoff has sold his Colorado home and loaned his campaign $325,000,
according to the Denver Post.
Romanoff will use the funds
to try to defeat Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) in the Aug. 10 Democratic primary.
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
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: “I’m never home anyway.”
A June Denver Post/Survey USA poll had Bennet leading Romanoff
by 17 points.
