Romney, Ryan returning to Colorado

By  | 

DENVER (AP) -- Mitt Romney is returning to Pueblo for a campaign rally he had to cancel.

Romney is due to speak Monday morning at the Pueblo airport. He had to cancel an appearance there last week in the wake of a fatal plane crash at the airport.

On Sunday, he held a rally in the Denver area.

Romney has not appeared publicly in Colorado since early August. His campaign has been roiled by his comments over the Middle East and a secretly recorded tape of his remarks at a fundraiser.

Romney told reporters he now plans to spend less time raising money and more time on the stump.

Republican vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan is planning two campaign stops in Colorado this week.

Ryan is planning to hold a town hall meeting at Walker Manufacturing in Fort Collins Wednesday morning and a rally at America the Beautiful Park in Colorado Springs on Wednesday afternoon.
