Smooth like that, Linkhart survives alt-Denver mayoral debate

Doug Linkhart is the survivor. He won the reality-TV-style alt-Denver Mayoral debate hosted last night by NewEra Colorado, OneColorado and Planned Parenthood-- the best candidate forum everâ„¢.

Denver mayoral race starts to heat up as candidates trot out...

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.

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.
