If the Denver mayor's race has been less than exciting so far, it probably isn't from a lack of effort on the part of the candidates. The Colorado Independent gets press releases on a nearly daily basis from one or more of them, announcing rallies, public appearances, fundraising totals and endorsements.
While the first fundraising reports do not have to be filed until Jan. 31, two candidates have announced unofficial totals. Michael Hancock said he has raised $265,000 and James Mejia's campaign
said he had raised $208,500 through the end of 2010.
