Romney Fundraiser in Denver: Recap and Full Video

Denver, Colorado

Directly on the heels of receiving a second round of Colorado endorsements, Mitt Romney held a luncheon fundraiser in downtown Denver on Friday. I was fortunate enough to be among the 100 or so attendees to hear Governor Romney give about a 15 minute speech and then take several questions from audience members.

Many of the state’s public officials who have endorsed Mitt were there including Attorney General John Suthers and Secretary of State Scott Gessler. Mark DeMoss was a surprise guest at the event. He is the founder of the DeMoss Group, an evangelical Christian public relations firm out of Atlanta.

Mitt began by talking about his experience in the last GOP debate at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley, California. Much of the rest of his speech was spent stressing his economic credentials, touting American exceptionalism, and pointing out President Obama’s failures in office. Mitt did not hesitate to call out Rick Perry during the Q&A session for labeling social security “a ponzi scheme”. Romney referenced to his book, No Apology, for possible solutions to the issue, but the main point was that social security should be saved not ended. It appears that this is an issue Mitt and other Republican candidates will try to use against Governor Perry.

Mitt was sharp and on top of his game as usual. The speech was full of stories, facts, insights, and a good dose of self-deprecating humor. Every time I hear him speak I am even more convinced that this is the man who should be leading our country. No one else in this presidential race possesses the combination of knowledge and successful experience that Mitt has.

Please enjoy the videos I filmed at the fundraiser. I apologize if the picture is a little shaky at times. My arm was just a little bit cramped after holding my phone in that position for 15 and 20 minutes at a time.
