Romanoff to Launch Summer Tour Tuesday, June 1
“A Senator for the Rest of Us”
Statewide Drive Begins in Boulder and Lafayette
Ten days after winning the State Democratic Assembly, U.S. Senate candidate Andrew Romanoff will launch a summer-long tour across Colorado. The campaign will open offices in seven cities along the way.
The first leg takes Romanoff to Boulder and Lafayette on Tuesday, June 1. The tour will continue in Fort Collins and Greeley on Wednesday, the Denver Metro area on Thursday, Colorado Springs and Pueblo on Friday, followed by the San Luis Valley, the Western Slope and the Eastern Plains.
Romanoff will revisit more than 100 communities over the next 10 weeks, listening to the concerns and celebrating the achievements of Colorado’s hard-working families and entrepreneurs. His first five stops are listed below.
The road to Washington ought to lead from Main Street, not from Wall Street,” Romanoff said. “My campaign and my career are focused on and fueled by the people of Colorado.”
Romanoff’s Main Street message rocketed him to a 21-point victory at last Saturday’s Democratic Assembly. He captured more than 60 percent of the vote — nearly tripling his margin of victory at the precinct caucuses two and a half months ago.
Romanoff is the only Senate candidate in Colorado — and one of the few in America — who refuses to accept contributions from special-interest groups. The insurance industry, pharmaceutical makers, oil companies, Wall Street banks and other political action committees have poured more than $1 million into his opponent’s campaign.
The special interests have enough politicians on their payroll,” Romanoff said. “We need a senator for the rest of us.”
