Colorado is a swing state in this year’s election attracting attention from both presidential candidates. After President Obama’s visit a few weeks ago, it’s now the Republican Party’s turn to try and sway.
Vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan is in Colorado today to campaign in hopes of winning over some voters. His first stop is in Fort Collins at Walker Manufacturing where a rally is being held. Later this evening he will be speaking in America the Beautiful Park in Colorado Springs.
Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has already made stops in Colorado but will be here again soon on his swing state run. According to Foxnews.com he will be here Sunday at a rally in a high school in Denver in hopes of gaining support from Colorado. RecentÂ pollsÂ show that Obama is leading 48.5 percent to Romeney’s 44.8 percent.Â
After negative responses to Romney’s comment on the “47 percent“, his visits are under even more pressure now. After Colorado he will stop in Ohio and Virginia where he is expected to speak Â more on his economic plans. This swing state run will be hugely influential with the first presidential debate on Wednesday, October 3rd.
