A Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate made a stop in Grand Junction Saturday night to meet consituents and raise campaign funds.

Former U.S. Representative Bob Schaffer hopes to take the seat that will be vacated by current Republican Senator Wayne Allard.

He says his primary concerns on the national scene are national security, immigration, and the War in Iraq. However, he says it's energy and economic growth that are the most issues facinbg the state of Colorado today.

He says his experience in the state legislature, state department of education, and the House of Representatives that make him the ideal choice for senator.

"I'm for kicking the doors down and changing things pretty dramatically," said Schaffer. "I want to make the U.S. Congress a place where the people's voices are heard, rather than the bureaucrats and lobbyists, which is what we have today."

A new Rasmussen poll released earlier this week shows Schaffer ahead of Democratic competitor Mark Udall by one percentage point.
