Romney coming to Basalt

In this July 23, 2012, photo Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, hosts a small-business roundtable during a campaign stop at Endural LLC in Costa Mesa, Calif. Stubbornly close and deeply divisive, the presidential race throttles into its last 100 days as an enormous clash over economic vision, likely to come down to fall debates, final unemployment numbers and fierce efforts to mobilize voters. It may seem like an election for the whole nation but only about eight states will decide who wins the White House. Polling shows the contest between President Barack Obama and Romney remains remarkably static across the country and in the key states, even as both men and their allies pour money into largely negative television advertising to sway opinions. The two candidates will intensify their time before voters in the weeks ahead, knowing much of the public will not truly start paying attention until after Labor Day. (AP Photo/Jason Redmond)

GOLDEN, Colo. – Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is coming to Colorado on Thursday, with stops planned in at least two cities.

Campaign officials say Romney is holding a morning rally at the Jefferson County fairgrounds.

In the afternoon, Romney is scheduled to join some Republican governors for an appearance at Basalt High School.

Romney was wrapping up a week-long trip to Europe on Tuesday. The trip included a stop in Poland where he said Poland’s economy is a model of small government and free enterprise that other nations should emulate as they struggle with the recession.
