GRAND JUNCTION, Colo (KKCO) Colorado Senator Steve King and Representative Ray Scott were on hand to speak about Romney's plans to take office. It was all part of the Romney-Ryan bus tour across Colorado. Some issues that were discussed include how America has seen record breaking unemployment rates, Romney's plan to strengthen the middle class, and how we in Colorado can get more jobs. Even though Romney wasn't in attendance Sunday, his supporters were very excited about November.

"I believe that we have a man that's going to give us hope and brain over hope and change. I believe firmly that Mitt Romney is the right person for the job of President of the United States and its obvious that what we have now isn't presidential," says one supporter. "One county at a time, we have to restore America to what it once was," says another supporter. "People are hurting, business are being closed; I think that the morale is down, and Romney gives us that spirit and hope that we can thrust forward and rebuild this wonderful country," says another supporter.

Officials also addressed the importance of voting, and what people can do to spread the word about the campaign.

If you missed out Sunday, it's not too late for you. Romney and Ryan's bus will continue it's tour through Colorado Monday, including one more stop in the valley. The bus will be at the Business Incubator Center starting at 8:45 am. It will be stopping for the Colorado Energy Advisory Committee launch press conference. The Romney-Ryan tour bus will then be heading to Gunnison to the Palisades Restaurant at 1 pm.

    Yes I believe that every tax payer has the right to have secret accounts in the Cayman Islands and Switzerland to avoid paying taxes on their income.

    Gee, Cheese and Rice, we have listened to the flogging of Bush for 4 years, and you have a problem with a few months of flogging of Obama?

    Romney was complaining about Medicare cuts today. Since when does a Republican complain about cuts in government spending? Could someone please tell me what this guy stands for without mentioning Obama? That dolphin's been flogged.
