Denver expects to meet $15 million goal

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

Security funding may be on the horizon:

Denver city officials say they expect to meet Friday's deadline to have $15 million in hand for the 2008 Democratic Convention.

It's the latest in a series of benchmarks toward the final goal of having $40 million in cash to stage the August convention.

The city fell about $1.5 million short of the previous goal of $7.5 million in June.

Mayor John Hickenlooper and Chris Lopez, a spokesman for the Denver host committee, both say they're confident the city will hit Friday's benchmark. - Denver Post
