Presidential campaign offers travel opportunity to young
Presidential campaigns are a great opportunity for some young people to travel and form their political points-of-view.
That’s why Tyler Rogers, 19, and Tony Polzin, 20, were walking downtown Thursday afternoon in a grassroots effort to gather young supporters for Mitt Romney.
They carried signs which read “Obama has to go” and wore Romney shirts with patriotic pants and tennis shoes.
Rogers is from California and Polzin is from Michigan. They met while gathering petition signatures in Arkansas.
They follow the Republican candidates from state to state selling buttons and T-shirts. They also discuss conservative issues with other young people.
On occasion, they meet people who disagree with their ideas, “but it’s a good way to start talking,” Polzin said.
Romney is more in line with our values, said Rogers, “He’s putting more power behind jobs and stuff.”
The men were stopping in Grand Junction overnight before moving on toward Reno and Las Vegas.
