MORRISON — A confident Mitt Romney, two weeks out from Election Day, spoke about his campaign as a movement sweeping the nation during a moonlit rally at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Tuesday night.
Repeatedly, Romney referred to President Barack Obama as a president whose time has passed — out of ideas to improve the economy and out of touch with the needs of business owners. Romney said his own plans would restore American prosperity and prestige.
"The president's status-quo campaign ... is why he's slipping, and it's why we're gaining," said Romney, who was joined at the rally by running mate Paul Ryan. "It's why this movement is growing across the country."
