Romney Rallies for Four Straight Days in Colorado

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 (yesterday)

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.

    Is that the same Red Rocks built with WPA money? How ironic.

      What, is that DailyKos talking point? You’ve obviously not been there. It’s a natural rock amphitheater formation. The earth built that (but not surprising that Libs would claim the Gov’t did…)

      “Public, organizational and private performances have been held at Red Rocks for more than 100 years.”

      Check your wiki before you spew ignorance.

      Yes, the CCC came in and did some new seating. Who paid for it?

        The tax payers paid for it. My point is that it is ironic that the man who wants to slash government and discredits stimulas other than tax cuts is going to hold an event at a place which was created with the help of the government. I have no problem with private enterprise using it. My only point is that it is ironic. If you can’t see the irony then you are the one who is ignorant. I thought this was an open forum.

    This all makes a lot of sense. If OH is safely in our column, then all that’s left to reach the finish line would be one more state, big or small. CO seems ripest for picking–we may already have it tucked away. This schedule affirms our best hopes about this race.

    Neither Pueblo nor Grand Junction are “bright red.” The last time a Repubican presidential ticket won Pueblo County was Nixon/Agnew in 1972. Grand Junction is very swingy, and maybe leans a little Republican. In 2008, McCain beat Obama in Garfield County (GJ) by literally two votes.
