I kicked off my Colorado Roast Pork RV Tour this past Friday, August 19, in Colorado Springs and Saturday, August 20, in the Denver Metro Area. The RV looks great and was a big hit at both events.
Over 140 people joined me and my campaign staff at Giusseppe’s Italian Restaurant in Colorado Springs on Friday to enjoy pork dishes in honor of the waste and excess spending in Colorado’s state budget.
The turnout was even bigger on Saturday, with nearly 350 people joining me in feasting on barbecued pork and brisket at my campaign headquarters in Englewood.
Both events ran out of pork, which I took as an auspicious start to my campaign to ensure the defeat of the $3.6 billion tax increase contained in Referendum C and Referendum D on this November’s ballot.
It was a real treat and extremely humbling to see so many friends and supporters turn out for both of these events. As I told both crowds, I know that my race for Governor will be both an exhilarating and a challenging undertaking, and when things get rough (as they always do at one point or another in any worthy endeavor), I know just where to look for inspiration – I will look to the hundreds of signatures that so many friends have written on the sides of my rolling campaign headquarters!
