2 GOP Presidential Hopefuls Hit Colorado

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) -- Two Republican presidential candidates who have given up on the Florida primary vote are hitting Colorado in hopes of a strong showing in next week's caucuses.

Ron Paul and Rick Santorum planned campaign stops in Colorado Tuesday. Paul and Santorum have ceded the Florida primary to front-runners Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney.

Colorado's presidential precinct caucuses are next week. The caucuses are non-binding; Colorado's 36 Republican National Convention delegates will be chosen at a state assembly held April. But the precinct caucuses can be evidence of a candidate's support.

Paul has stops planned in Fort Collins, Denver and Colorado Springs. Santorum planned a campaign event in Lone Tree, with further stops Wednesday and Saturday.

Romney's campaign has said he'll campaign here just before the Tuesday caucuses.

    Ron Paul was awesome today drawing in over 3500 people in the state. Santorum had 100 people show up to his private golf course event. Ron Paul is the real deal and not bought by anyone. Wake up and learn more online.

    It's all collapsing but if you credited the New World Order for it you be a crazy conspiracy theorist. Even as the USA is sinking people want a nice, reasonable reason why.

    As a now registered Republican, I will be voting for Romney in the primary and Obama in the general. Just like Rush Limbaugh said to do. Let's see if flip flopping, off shore accounts, greed, demand for payment after bankrupting companies and "corporations are people my friend" can stand up against a constitutional law professor and a do nothing Congress. Look up the 1948 election of Truman/ Dewey. Besides women, seniors, minorities and college students are going to own this election... unless the Republicans get their way with fraudulently changing laws so old people with no drivers license and the courthouse in Alabama where their birth certicates were stored burned down so now no license and no voting. Republican losers its OBAMA 2012. Wanna bet $10,000?

      Thanks for proving how desperate the left is. You will resort to lying and cheating in a feeble attempt to steal this presidential election. I guess you also approve of voter intimidation, and having illegal aliens and people who vote using the names of dead people. Typical democrat.

      Why would you vote for the alleged lesser evil? Romney and Gingrich are the same as Obama if not worse. They do not care about the regular people or the economy. They only care about themselves and how to make more money. We need someone who actually cares about the people, the economy, the country and the constitution. I will not vote for Romney nor Gingrich. I will vote for peace and liberty.

        Anyone who cares isn't going to make it that far. I supported Ron Paul but I have to wonder what his role is in the show. Even if he got elected I'm sure he would die of "old age" before he could rock the boat. America would buy that reason. And I'm really tired of hearing "they don't get it." You mean to tell me that they are that stupid or.....incompetent? No, they get it all right. They are simply not on our side.

    And let me be the first to say that I am not voting and i don't want to hear the mentally challenged tell me that since I didn't vote I have no right to complain. The system is rigged but if it makes you feel superior vote all you want

      Mentally challenged? You don't have to be mentally challenged to know that if you don't vote you have no right to complain. You just showed your own ignorance....

    This explains the banners on I-25 talking about the Ron Paul Revolution. Anyone else see them? One on the pedestrian bridge and the other on the bridge before it going north on I-25.
