CRAIG, Colo. (AP) -- Mitt Romney is visiting rural Craig to meet with hotel owners who made a video inviting Romney to their hometown to talk about energy prices.
The presumptive Republican presidential nominee is making a brief campaign appearance in the Moffat County town Tuesday morning. The Denver Post reports that Romney chose to stop in the small western Colorado town after seeing a video produced by the right-leaning group Energy for America featuring hotel owners from Craig.
In the video, Frank and Kerrie Moe argue that energy regulation is hurting their town.
After his visit to Craig, Romney heads to Las Vegas for a fundraiser hosted by celebrity real estate mogul Donald Trump.
