Although the presidential candidates themselves won’t be hitting Colorado anytime soon (though I wouldn’t be surprised if one or both of them showed up on Tuesday), a bevy of big-name campaign surrogates are roaming Colorado Monday and Tuesday to try and get out the vote.
On Monday for Romney, the GOP vice presidential candidate, Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan, will make an appearance in Johnstown, Colorado.
Republicans Texas Gov. Rick Perry and California Congressman Kevin McCarthy will campaign for Romney in Grand Junction, Clifton, Delta and Glenwood Springs.
On Monday for Obama, Colorado’s Democratic U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet, Gov. John Hickenlooper, and national Obama campaign co-chair Federico Pena will all be at a Denver rally. United States Secretary of the Interior (and former Colorado U.S. Senator) Ken Salazar will spend all day Monday and Tuesday traveling the state for Obama — on Monday, he’ll hold events in Durango, Pagosa Springs, Alamosa, and Walsenburg. And then on Tuesday, Salazar will hit Trinidad, Pueblo, Colorado Springs and Denver.
And on Election Day, comedian George Lopez will be at four different Obama events throughout the day, in Denver, Greeley, Brighton, and Thornton.
I’m sure more will come, too.
