Romer is a white, affluent native of Denver whose father was a popular three-term governor and who spent a career in the world of banking.
Michael Hancock is an African-American who overcame a poor upbringing to become a Denver councilman and get elected twice as City Council president.Anyone want the spoiled white banker? Yeesh. Tough coverage for Romer. I suppose one could argue that the Post is trying to plug a party narrative into a nonpartisan race, casting Romer as the Republican and Hancock as the Democrat. Of course, both men are Democrats, as are the bulk of the city's voters. Sure, Romer has the backing of Republican Josh Penry, but Hancock is getting money from John Elway, so I guess they're about even on Republican-ness.
Sounds like Romer is going to have to spend some more time kissing up to Post reporters.
