Supporters of Republican candidate Mitt Romney are making a push in Colorado to recruit volunteers and voters to gain ground in a key state where President Barack Obama has long had a presence.
The Romney campaign is opening an office Saturday in Grand Junction on the same day the Republican National Committee launches its first "Super Saturday." It's an outreach effort nationwide.
Romney opened his Colorado headquarters last month in the Denver suburb of Lakewood. The Romney campaign says it has been working with the RNC and the state party for months to build field operations across Colorado.
Obama's campaign has been working in Colorado since at least last fall.
The Super Saturday events will happen once a month through October and will also promote state candidates.
