Romney bus coming to Eagle Saturday

EAGLE, Colorado - Eagle County Republicans announce the opening of their 2012 campaign office at 50 Chambers Road in Eagle. The event will coincide on Saturday with the arrival of the Romney Victory bus, which is making a 17-stop tour of the state of Colorado.

Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will not on the bus, but other Republican leaders will be.

"The Romney bus and GOP elected officials will be traveling the state over the next four days to hold events to rally support for Gov. Romney and the Republican team," said Hayden Stone, Colorado director of Voter Contact.

Candidates running for office in Eagle County have been invited to speak and will be available for questions after the bus departs.

Kaye Ferry, chair of Eagle County Republicans, "encourages everyone to join us for this exciting event.

The scheduled arrival time for the bus in Eagle County is 10 a.m.

The office will be used as a distribution center, call center and event center. The bus tour is the kick-off event and there will be party the night of the first presidential debate on Oct. 3. The debate is being held at the University of Denver and will be broadcast live on all of the major networks. Eagle County residents are invited to gather and watch the debate, the first in Colorado, and discuss the results as well as enjoy a night of camaraderie.

"It's exciting to be one of the stops chosen for the bus tour, and the opening of the new office will give us a significant base for operations during this very important election year," said Peter Mackechnie, vice chair of Eagle County Republican Central Committee.
