The mayor's war chest

Watch out - the mayor's got a war chest. Daniel Chacon of the Rocky Mountain News reported that Hickenlooper now has more than half a million dollars in cash. With that and his high approval ratings, it's no wonder only one candidate (homeless advocate Drew Hanson) is willing to take him on.

Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper collected more than $112,000 for his re-election campaign in February, his campaign statements show.

The mayor now has nearly $588,000 total on hand for his re-election campaign.

"We’re receiving all the way from $2 contributions to $3,000 contributions," Lynea Hansen, Hickenlooper's campaign manager, said today.

"The support crosses all boundaries of the community, coming from everywhere," she said. "It just shows that John Hickenlooper has a wide base of support and continues to enjoy that wide base of support."
