SandBoxBlogs: Steamboat Today "Romney to visit Craig on Tuesday"

Remember not too long ago when the Garfield County Republicans and the Glenwood Springs Post Independent mocked the idea that any big candidate would hit the rural parts of the Western Slope of Colorado?

Remember how that made conservatives in the area feel, that extra-large dose of good 'ol boys and girls club arrogance?

All common folk Frank Moe, up in Craig had to do was send a video to the Romney team.

Mitt Romney will be in Craig on Tuesday.  If he's lucky, there won't be any GarCo GOP on hand for a photo op.  Well.....probably not.  Press and photo ops are pretty much the only thing GarCo  GOP can be counted on to do repeatedly and well.

If the word ever got out to republican candidates that the entire west slope and northern colorado were the way to win the state, we'd have big name tickets here instead of the front range. Watch this visit from Romney have record crowds. If he was smart he'd take his bus tour either coming or going through I-70 west and hit Rifle, Silt, Eagle.
