President Obama heading back to Denver next Thursday
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — President Barack Obama’s first post-convention campaign stop in Colorado is set for next Thursday, FOX31 Denver is first to report.
Obama will hold a campaign event Thursday in the Denver area one week after tonight’s acceptance speech here in which he plans to lay out the Nov. 6 election, currently 61 days away, as a “stark choice” between two different visions for the country’s future.
After President Clinton’s speech Wednesday night focused on the past and present, Obama will attempt to turn the page for the television audience of millions by focusing more on what he’ll do in his next four years and less on what he’s accomplished in his first.
“But when all is said and done – when you pick up that ballot to vote – you will face the clearest choice of any time in a generation,” Obama will say, according to excerpts of the speech released Thursday afternoon by the campaign.
“Over the next few years, big decisions will be made in Washington, on jobs and the economy; taxes and deficits; energy and education; war and peace – decisions that will have a huge impact on our lives and our children’s lives for decades to come.
Obama campaigned in Boulder last Sunday with his rally on the CU campus drawing some 13,000 supporters.
