Starting Point

Democratic White House contender John Kerry will start off his cross-country bus trip soon, and his first stop is right here in Colorado.

Kerry will start his trip at Fitzsimmons Army Hospital in Aurora where he was born more than 60 years ago.

Campaign officials say the trip begins Friday and ends in Boston for the Democratic National Convention on July 26.

This trip will be the second to the state for Kerry who made a fundraising stop in Aspen last month.

Kerry's running mate, John Edwards, and their families should also make the trip.
