Romanoff needs cash, not couch

Posted By on Tue, Aug 17, 2010 at 4:24 PM

Now that Andrew Romanoff has lost his bid for the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate, he needs to pay off his campaign debt.

That means he needs cash, not someplace to sleep, after selling his home to help fund his campaign.

Romanoff ... not homeless yet.
  • Romanoff ... not homeless yet.

Romanoff issued a statement to his supporters today, thanking them for their hard work and asking for a leg up to pay off his campaign debt, which he didn't quantify. Romanoff was defeated by incumbent appointee Michael Bennet.

Dear Friends,

When I decided to run for the U.S. Senate 11 months ago, I knew the path would not be easy. I am and always will be grateful to the friends who joined me along the way. Your unflagging support made this journey worthwhile.

While we fell short in the end, our grassroots effort exceeded many people's expectations. The credit for our success belongs to an exceptionally hard-working staff, an incomparable team of volunteers, and thousands of generous donors. To each of you, let me offer my heartfelt thanks.

I would also like to answer two of the questions I've gotten most often over the last few days:

First, I don't need an air mattress, a futon, a spare bedroom or a basement. Neither does my dog. We (and by "we," I mean mostly Zorro) have gotten a lot of kind offers — which I appreciate very much — but we're not out of our house yet.

Second, our campaign did incur a debt. I need your help to retire it. The most you can contribute is $2,400.

That limit includes any money you gave us during the primary. Click here to make a contribution.
I hope you'll join me at our thank-you party next Thursday, August 26, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., at our headquarters (2223 S. Monaco Pkwy., Denver). An invitation will follow separately. In the meantime, please accept my gratitude and my very best wishes.
