Somewhere near Ft. Lupton, CO.
FOX 31’s Eli Stokols:
Mitt Romney, who’s now a sure bet to be the Republican Party’s presidential nominee this fall, will speak on energy issues at a drill site in Fort Lupton on Wednesday.
The speech is set for 10 a.m. at K.P. Kauffman Company.
It’s Romney’s first visit to Colorado since Feb. 5, when he gave a short speech to supporters on the Auraria Campus after a disappointing second-place finish behind Rick Santorum in Colorado’s GOP caucuses that night.
We didn’t exactly know this but apparently, if you take I-25 up to Exit 240, head east on Colorado Highway 119 to Weld County Road 24, then make a right onto Weld County Road 19, you’ll find yourself…in the middle of nowhere! But that’s not all: there in the middle of nowhere, you’ll also find the KPK Production Division field office and staging yard, and that’s where GOP presumptive presidential nominee Mitt Romney will give his Colorado speech tomorrow at 10AM.
In attendance out in the middle of nowhere will be oil industry workers and executives, most of whom it’s a safe bet will not need much convincing to vote Romney. There will also be television cameras, and for those of us unable to drive to the middle of nowhere tomorrow morning to find out what Mitt Romney is doing there, that’s probably a good thing! FOX 31 reports that Romney will fly from there to Oklahoma for another event, so that’s all the Mitt love Colorado gets.
After Barack Obama’s CU tour de force, it’s a study in contrasts to say the least.
