Denver is the only one I can think of.
I don't know if you specifically mean American cities but I think the capital of Bolivia is like...12,000 feet or something.

This is the General U.S. forum so La Paz does not qualify.

Santa Fe, the capitol of New Mexico, is at over 7,200 feet above sea level, but with only 144,000 people in the metro area and about 70,000 in the city proper, probably does not qualify according to the premise of the OP either.
