Former New York mayor and Republican presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani is scheduled to make a stop in Colorado Springs next week.

Giuliani plans to attend a $250 per person lunch reception at The Broadmoor on August 10 as part of an effort to bring all the Republican front-runners to town.

Giuliani will also attend a private round-table for $1,000 donors at the home of Sinton Dairy executive Joel Midkiff.

Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney spoke July 18th at the county GOP's Lincoln Day Dinner.

Giuliani's visit is scheduled nearly three months after Colorado Springs-based Focus on the Family founder James Dobson slammed the ex-mayor in an online column, and said he would not vote for Giuliani if he won the Republican nomination.

Speaking as a private citizen, Dobson called Giuliani an "unapologetic supporter of abortion on demand," and criticized him for signing a bill in 1997 creating domestic-partnership benefits in New York City.

He also said there were other "moral concerns" with Giuliani, including the fact he's on his third marriage.

Giuliani has urged Republican voters to look beyond the differences they have with him on social issues, and said it was important to respect those with whom one disagrees.

    And MS what have the DEMONcrats done to better this country since taking over Congress? God help us all if the anti-christ, Hillary Clinton, gets into office. One thing is for sure, it will keep with the tradition of a DEMONcratic president with no balls!

    It doesn't matter if Rudy comes to town or not. The Dems are going to win the White House and larger majorities in both houses because the reps have hurt this country so bad.
