Somewhere near the Utah and Wyoming borders.
9NEWS’ Brandon Rittiman:
Sources tell 9NEWS that Governor Mitt Romney will stop in Craig, Colorado.
Full details of the campaign stop have not been finalized.
Craig is a four-hour drive from Denver…
The Northwest Colorado town has a population of about 10,000 and is popular with big game hunters and is known for being an excellent spot to hunt elk.
Much like Mitt Romney’s blink-and-you’ll-miss-it stop in a field near Ft. Lupton a couple of weeks ago, the logic of appearing in a place where swing voters he needs to reach do not live is a bit mysterious. Is it because Craig is an easier drive from Salt Lake City than Denver? Maybe because you can count the number of Democrats in Moffat County on one hand? Too far for pesky Denver reporters to crash the party with their microphones and silly questions?
Or maybe it’s time for Romney to kiss the ring of the Bear’s Ears Tea Party Patriots?
Bottom line: he’ll be about as far as you can be from a major media market in Colorado this time, and it’s (sorry, locals) not even all that pretty a backdrop. Your guess is as good as ours.
