A front range businessman hoping to be the next Governor of Colorado continues his tour of the centennial state, stopping off Sunday morning in the town of Palisade. Although in town for a family reunion, Democrat Rutt Bridges says the Sunday Market, where attendance has grown in each of the last three weeks, was a perfect place to get out and meet the voters. Bridge's says he's not a politician by trade, but founded the think–tank Bighorn Center for Public Policy in 1999. He also successfully lobbied for the passing of the Colorado no–call list which later became a model for the national list. The candidate says his background in business would be a tremendous attribute for the position, adding bi–partisan politics must become a thing of the past. Bridges will be in Steamboat Springs and Meeker Monday, finishing up his western slope swing in Black Hawk on Tuesday.
