President Bush Visits Colorado Springs

By  | 

President Bush concluded a two-day Colorado campaign swing with a stop in Colorado Springs Tuesday, where he worked to fire up his conservative base.

The President asked a crowd of about 10,000 people to help keep him in the White House and the Senate in Republican hands by urging
other people to go to the polls on Election Day.

Colorado Springs Mayor Lionel Rivera says Colorado Springs has always delivered for Republican candidates. But he says this year
is crucial, and Republicans cannot take things for granted.

President Bush won the state in 2000, but recent polls have shown him and Democratic challenger John Kerry in a very tight race in Colorado.
