Gov. Ritter will hold a media availability to respond to media inquiries we've received today about developments in the Republican Party primary for governor.


            WHEN: 6 p.m. today (Sunday, Nov. 22, 2009)

            WHERE: Bottom of the South Steps of the Capitol (media can park on the sidewalk along 14th Street)


            Gov. Ritter issued the following statement about the GOP developments:


"I've spent the past three years standing up for families and small businesses, leading Colorado on major issues like energy, the economy and healthcare. I'm making tough decisions to keep the state's budget balanced, to get the economy back on track and create new jobs in every corner of Colorado. Over the next year, I'll continue making my case to the people of Colorado about what kind of future we want for our children and grandchildren. We can keep moving forward and making progress building a New Energy Economy, revitalizing our schools and containing skyrocketing healthcare costs. Or we can go backwards with Congressman McInnis and a 1990s strategy that has nothing new, no specific solutions and only vague discredited political rhetoric."
