Colorado remains a vital state in this election but with all the focus on the Rust Belt it seems to get lost in the shuffle. Its 9 electoral votes are more than either Iowa and Nevada which can change the balance of power is this essentially tied election. Starting yesterday, the Romney campaign kicked off four straight days of events culminating with Mitt Romney himself looking to fill up the famed Red Rocks concert venue. For each site I provided links to RSVP for the event. Tickets are going fast as I believe the Red Rocks event is already sold out!
Saturday morning, comedian Jeff Foxworthy will rally supporters in Colorado Springs.
Sunday October 21
Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who challenged Romney for the GOP nomination earlier this year, will campaign for Romney Sunday afternoon with events in Colorado Springs and Pueblo. [Thanks to the tip from reader David Ramos, we know Paul Ryan is also holding a rally at t the Colorado Springs Airport. Address is 1575 Aviation Way, Colorado Springs CO 80916. The rally begins at 6:00 pm MDT. RSVP here to receive ticket. — thanks David]
Monday October 22
On Monday, vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan will hold rallies in Pueblo (9am) and Grand Junction (5:30pm), two bright red parts of this purple state, in an effort to energize the GOP base, which will need to turn out in big numbers to put Romney over the edge in the battle for the state’s nine electoral votes.
Tuesday October 23
Tuesday night marks the culmination of the four-day surge with the rally at historic Red Rocks, the famed concert venue tucked between two giant monoliths with stunning views of metro Denver. The venue seats 9,450 people, which, if filled, would be Romney’s largest Colorado crowd to date.
The surge in activity mirrors the campaign’s four days of rallies in the run-up to the first presidential debate here earlier this month, when Romney, his wife, Ann, and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio rallied supporters for three days leading up to the Oct. 3 debate before Romney took a victory lap at a conference of conservatives the following morning.
