Ron Paul to make three stops along Front Range Tuesday as GOP contest moves West

DENVER POST | Kurtis Lee | January 28, 2012
Ron Paul will make a series of campaign stops along the Front Range Tuesday — one week before Colorado Republicans hold their Feb. 7 caucuses.

Paul is slated to speak at Colorado State University’s Lory Student Center at 10 a.m., before then traveling south for a noon rally at the Renaissance Denver Hotel. His day will end at 2 p.m. with a speech in Colorado Springs at the Colorado Jet Center.

“Dr. Paul’s engagement with supporters and undecided voters just a week in advance of the caucus promises to help us achieve a competitive showing,” said Matthew Holdridge, the campaign’s state director.

The Texas Congressman is the first out of the field of Republican presidential hopefuls to campaign in the state this year. Moreover, he’s the lone candidate, as of now, to open a Colorado campaign office, which is located in northeast Denver.

“The Republican party here is excited to have the various GOP candidates come to Colorado to compete in our caucuses,” said Ryan Call, chairman of the state’s GOP. “While many Coloradans are concerned with the economy and job creation, candidates will also be able to discuss issues like energy and agriculture, which are also very important to Western states.”

Though Paul has not won any of the early caucus and primary states, he has garnered the support of young voters. In Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina he’s come in first when it comes to voters under the age of 30.
