Obama plans Denver stop on national tour touting stimulus package
President Barack Obama will be in the Denver metro area Tuesday as part of a nationwide tour “to convince Americans his economic stimulus plan will get the job done,” The Denver Post reports.
The president is planning stops in Denver and Phoenix on Tuesday and Wednesday. That comes on top of a whirlwind of travel this week: Obama was scheduled to be in Peoria, Ill., Thursday afternoon after visiting Indiana, Florida and Virginia earlier.
A source told The Denver Post that Obama would be in the Denver-metro area Tuesday and that the White House is looking for a work site at which Obama can tout green energy components of the $798 billion federal stimulus bill.
Obama last visited the Mile High City on Oct. 26, within sight of Election Day, when an estimated 100,000 gathered in Civic Center Park for a Sunday morning rally. Later that day, Obama spoke before a crowd of 50,000 in Fort Collins. View a slide show on Obama’s appearance in Denver from The Colorado Independent’s Bob Spencer here.
