Mike Coffman elected Aurora mayor by small margin
AURORA, Colo. — City officials in Aurora have announced that former Republican Congressman Mike Coffman has narrowly won a five-way mayoral race. The Aurora Sentinel reported Thursday that Coffman had a 215-vote lead over Omar Montgomery, a former head of the Aurora chapter of the NAACP. Coffman declared himself the winner Thursday after his campaign said too few ballots remained to be counted from the Nov. 5 election for any opponent to pull ahead.
