Mitt Romney Gets Overflow Crowd at Red Rocks
I'm watching the local news. 7 news reports the crowd showing up for Mitt Romney tonight at Red Rocks tonight exceeded the outdoor amphitheater's 10,000 capacity. (The campaign gave out 25,000 tickets.)
Unless several thousand went to see Kid Rock perform for Romney instead of Romney himself that's a big showing. (Kid Rock sang Born Free and yes, I'm being facetious.) Also stumping for Romney at the event: New Mexico's female "Latino Governor" The news referred to her as "star power" and said the appearance of star power "wasn't an accident." The supporters placed closest to Romney were those holding signs that read "Democrats for Romney."
Traffic to Red Rocks was seriously delayed at rush hour, but the news said part of the reason was someone had hit a deer. [More...]
Obama will be in Denver tomorrow at Denver Civic Center Park. Tickets are required.
Early voting has begun in Colorado. The campaign ads are non-stop, and tonight it seemed like there were a lot more ads for Romney than Obama. It seems Colorado is indeed going to be a close race.
I got my ballot and it's very confusing. It's not like you just check a name. There are 13 candidates for President, Obama is second, Romney is third. The ballot is in English and Spanish, with Spanish right below the English for each initiative. The detailed legalese in the initiatives renders the initiatives practically incomprehensible.
Amendment 64 to legalize marijuana is on the back at the bottom left. This is a ballot you need to take 15 minutes to read, and can't do while multi-tasking.
As usual, even the process of marking your choice is unnecessarily complicated. You have to draw a line between arrows. What happened to a marking an X or putting a checkmark in a small box or filling in a small circle? I had to get a ruler to make sure my lines were straight. I wonder how many people will take the time to do that.
The important thing is Democrats and marijuana legalization supporters can't take a chance and sit this election out. Every vote in Colorado is critical.
