DENVER — All of the votes haven’t been counted yet in Denver’s election for mayor. But so far, the two candidates who brought in the most money are leading the race.
Mike Johnston, a former state senator, and Kelly Brough, a former CEO of the Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce, will likely go head-to-head in a runoff election on June 6.
