Colorado’s Attorney General John Suthers, along with Republican National Convention delegates Rep. Kent Lambert, El Paso County Clerk and Recorder Bob Balink and El Paso County Commissioner Wayne Williams are sending dispatches to the Colorado Springs Gazette on their birds-eye views from the convention floor in St. Paul — including reports of how the swing state of Colorado is proving to be a big hit.
Today, Suthers weighs in. Yesterday he got to introduce Laura Bush to Colorado and Idaho delegates, and today they’re expecting a visit from Karl Rove himself! All the rallying, Suthers reports, is getting the Republicans fired up.
Colorado’s status as a swing state has garnered our delegation a good deal of attention at the convention. We’re seated directly in front of the stage with other swing states such as Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Michigan. Our Colorado delegate breakfast has attracted a star-studded group of speakers. On Tuesday morning, I had the privilege of introducing first lady Laura Bush to the Colorado and Idaho delegations. Karl Rove is to speak to us today, Wednesday
morning. Colorado’s importance in the election is also evidenced by the fact that both John McCain and Sarah Palin will be in Colorado Springs on Saturday, immediately after the close of the Republican convention.
