A Denver ballot measure that would have significantly changed how the city conducted elections and how candidates raised money has been pulled by its backers. The ballot measure supported by Common Cause Colorado, Colorado Ethics Watch, the League of Women Voters and other advocacy groups would create an $8 million city fund to match small cash contributions during election cycles. It also aimed to limit the amount of campaign contributions for local office, cut out corporate and union donations.
