Romney tries to claim change mantle in Colorado

|

DENVER (AP) — Mitt Romney says he's the man who can finally change Washington.

Romney made his first Colorado appearance since early August on Sunday night at a school on the border of Denver and Jefferson County.

He says Barack Obama has admitted he can't change Washington from the inside and that it can only be changed from the outside. Romney urged the crowd to give the president the chance to be outside Washington again after Nov. 6.

Romney appeared before an enthusiastic crowd after a rough two weeks during which he was criticized for his comments on violence in the Middle East and a secret recording in which he appeared to dismiss the 47 percent of people who don't pay income taxes.

He will be in Pueblo on Monday morning.
