"Raucous Welcome" for Candidates

The Douglas County Democratic Assembly, held on Saturday March 22nd, provided a 'raucous welcome' for candidates, based on a tweet from Andrew Romanoff. 

In addition to conducting the party business at hand for delegates at assembly, five candidates arrived at Mammoth Heights Elementary School in Parker to speak to the crowd: Governor Hickenlooper, Mark Udall, Betsy Markey, Vic Meyers and Andrew Romanoff. 

The messages were powerful and motivating.  Governor Hickenlopper included a joke about a shark family to illustrate one of his points (you had to be there) that negative ads don't work.   Vic Meyers told about a conversation he had with some folks at a diner that morning over breakfast.   The event can be summed up by a quote from Mark Udall,  "You can't buy Coloradan's votes.  You have to earn them."
