DENVER (AP) - Democrat Andrew Romanoff fell short last week in his primary challenge to Sen. Michael Bennet. Romanoff is also short on funds and is asking donors to help cover his campaign debt.

Romanoff sent supporters a plea Tuesday asking for donations up to the legal maximum of $2,400 to help him retire campaign debt. Romanoff didn't say how much debt he has.

Romanoff gambled everything in his bid against Bennet. Romanoff even sold his Denver home for about $250,000. In his e-mail, Romanoff jokingly thanked supporters for offers for free housing but said he and his dog are “not out of our house yet.” He didn't elaborate.

Bennet defeated Romanoff 54 percent to 46 percent and will face Republican Ken Buck in November.

    Andrew Romanoff fought the good fight for Colorado Democrats. You can still support Andrew. Help him retire his campaign debt and raise the funds to repay the personal loan that he made to his campaign. If just 13,000 of those that voted for him donated donated $25 a piece, his personal loan to them campaign would be r...ecouped. Isn't... it the least we can do? Contributions need to be made either directly on Andrew's website (red button, top right corner) or by mailing or dropping off contributions at his Monaco headquarters. Do not let the Bennet supporters tell you this is the wrong thing to do. All politicians who lose elections usually need some help from their supporters. Donate at Thanks
