BRIGHTON, Colo. (AP) - In a congressional contest in the Denver suburbs shaping up to be the most expensive in state history, Democrat Andrew Romanoff is trying to knock off three-term incumbent Republican Rep. Mike Coffman.

The 6th Congressional District has been in GOP hands since its creation more than three decades ago.

Romanoff was a rising star in Colorado’s Democratic Party. But he was passed over for appointment to the U.S. Senate in 2009 and later lost a primary battle against Sen. Michael Bennet. He moved to Aurora in a bid to revive his political career.

Coffman is a battle-tested incumbent. But Romanoff has been outraising him, and the district is much less safe for Republicans after it was redrawn to include more Democrats and independents.
