Howard Dean Visits Colorado; Rallies Small Group of Colorado Dems

Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean came to Colorado for a short trip yesterday, to raise money for the Colorado Democratic Party and rally the troops.

According to David Montero, of the Rocky Mountain News, Dean spoke to a crowd of about 200 of the party faithful (the suggested contribution was $30) at the Pipefitters Local 208 union hall. 

Dean emphasized that if Democrats run on their shared values of fairness, toughness, and fiscal responsibility, they could win as much as one-third of the vote among Evangelical Christians, and also carry strong majorities nationwide, as well as in Colorado.

See and hear his comments after the jump:

Leading off the speeches were Colorado Treasurer Cary Kennedy, Speaker of the Colorado House Andrew Romanoff, and Colorado House Majority Leader Alice Madden, while Governor Bill Ritter arrived late, and concluded the evening’s remarks.
