CASTLE ROCK, Colo. — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will be stumping for Republican candidates in races that could shift the power in Washington.
Bush will campaign in Douglas County, where voters tend to lean right. He’ll be in Castle Rock on Wednesday to show his support for all Republican candidates, most notably Rep. Mike Coffman, gubernatorial candidate Bob Beauprez and Senate candidate Cory Gardner.
Bush is saying he wants to find solutions for big problems. And airing on TV in the final week of the campaign in Denver and Colorado Springs is a Spanish-language ad in which Bush is supporting Gardner.
Bush is a symbol of the GOP establishment and not the party’s more conservative tea party wing. He has stronger support than most Republicans from Hispanic voters.
The Gardner-Mark Udall race is important because Colorado, Iowa and North Carolina have Democratic-held seats and are at the center of the battle over which party will control the Senate.
Democrats have relied on some big names to help earn some votes. Former President Bill Clinton was in Colorado this week. First lady Michelle Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were in the state last week.
Bush is scheduled to be at the Douglas County Fairgrounds about 6 p.m.
