DENVER – Looking to help register and sway more voters in this critical swing state, some of Colorado’s most prominent Republicans are hitting the streets and working the phones Saturday on behalf of their party and its presidential candidate.

The campaign’s main talking point will focus on Friday’s July jobs report and the uptick in unemployment, proof, according to Mitt Romney and his campaign’s army of surrogates, that the economy is sputtering.

In Douglas County, Congressman Cory Gardner, R-Yuma, and statehouse Speaker Frank McNulty, R-Highlands Ranch, will lead the outreach efforts at an event in Castle Rock.

Gardner, who represents the sprawling 4th Congressional District, will also headline events later Saturday in Fort Collins and Greeley.

Congressman Doug Lamborn will appear at a campaign event in Colorado Springs and Congressional candidate Joe Coors, challenging Democratic Congressman Ed Perlmutter for his 7th Congressional District seat, will host the Saturday morning event in Thornton.

Colorado GOP Chairman Ryan Call and former Senate Minority Leader Mike Kopp will also be leading events, according to the Romney campaign.
