Obama to campaign in Colorado Springs Tuesday
DENVER — A day after President Barack Obama told a crowd of supporters in City Park that he may return to the state before Election Day, FOX31 Denver is first to report that the president is indeed heading back to the Centennial State.
Next Tuesday, Obama will hold a campaign rally in Colorado Springs, the conservative heart of this politically diverse swing state.
The Obama campaign continues to iron out the details of its schedule over the final week and a half of the campaign, looking to send the president to the places where an uptick in enthusiasm and, thus, turnout, could move the needle enough to nail down a state.
His Tuesday morning stop in Colorado Springs will be the first of four that day, as the president will continue on to Green Bay, Wisc. and Ohio, where he’ll stump in Cincinnati and Akron.
The visit will also mark Obama’s 12th visit to Colorado this year; he last stumped in Colorado Springs on August 9 as part of a two-day swing through the state.
Stay with FOX31 Denver for more details about the president’s next visit, which may not be his last to Colorado.
Democratic operatives are telling FOX31 Denver that the final 10-day sprint is going to be a whirlwind of rallies, speeches, interviews and get-out-the-vote efforts.
With the campaign focused now on just six or seven states, it’s almost a guarantee that Mitt Romney will make at least one more appearance in Colorado as well.
A spate of new polls released Thursday underline the closeness of the race here.
