KREX News Room
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.- Just after 8 p.m. Thursday night, Obama For America's "Colorado Forward" RV tour stopped in Grand Junction.
Dozens of supporters greeted several major players in Colorado's Democratic Party, including Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar, Sen. Mark Udall, Sen. Michael Bennet, Lt. Gov. Joseph Garcia and Sen. Gail Schwartz.
They all spoke about President Barack Obama's future plans for America.
"Here on the Western Slope, the president has understood our fight for land, water and people, and there's been so much good that has been done here in Colorado. He understands the importance of making sure there's jobs for everybody here in America, and he basically saved the United States of America from a second great depression," said Salazar. "We're coming back; we're doing a lot better then we were two or three years ago, and that's because the president's policies are taking place."
The bus will head to Montrose, Durango and Pagosa Springs on Friday, and the tour will finally end back in Denver on Monday.
