DENVER (AP) -- Three of four Republican candidates for president are in Colorado, trying to pin down support in Tuesday's precinct caucuses.

Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich all had Colorado stops on their agendas Monday. Only Ron Paul had no announced plans to hold a campaign event here.

Republicans say they've been getting plenty of phone calls in recent days from campaigns seeking their support. Tuesday's precinct caucuses are nonbinding, but they can show support for the various campaigns.

Romney won Colorado's caucuses in 2008 and is considered the favorite this year. Most of Colorado's 36 delegates won't be assigned until after the state GOP assembly in April.

Democrats also hold precinct caucuses next month. But because Democrats have no presidential nominating race, the Democratic caucuses will concern only local races.

    either vote for the draft dodger (Romney) or the Socialist BO, we sure have a limited field of GOP candidates that are worthy.

    Mitt Romeney : Consummate Politician – One who will Say Anything and Anytime to Get Elected. Clinton, Bush, Obama and Romney look and sound an awfully lot alike.

    When asked whether he would have signed the recent National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, that Obama signed, Romney said, “I would have signed.” So much for the protection of what’s really important - the inalienable rights of American citizens.
