A recent poll shows Michael Hancock with a ten-point lead over Chris Romer in the Denver mayor's race. That kind of thing makes politicians feel like singing -- and sing Hancock did, belting out "Jailhouse Rock" with Jonny Barber & the Living Deads at Jonesy's EatBar over the weekend.
Who chose the song? And is there anyone in particular Hancock would like to see rockin' a cellblock?
We put in a call to Hancock's campaign and will update this post when a spokesperson replies. In the meantime, here are a couple shots of Hancock in action, courtesy of Westword contributor Nancy Levine.
More from our Calhoun: Wake-Up Call archive: "Tom Tancredo hasn't endorsed Michael Hancock, despite what pro-Romer tricksters say."
