Salazar, Buck make Grand Junction stops today, Thursday
U.S. Rep. John Salazar, D-Colo., and Republican Senate candidate Ken Buck will be in Grand Junction today and Thursday.
Salazar, who is seeking his fourth term in Congress, is tending to business not directly related to his campaign, while Buck is making a whistle stop in town.
Salazar is to take part in a community discussion about changing the status of Colorado National Monument to that of a national park in an appearance at 5:30 p.m. at the Devils Kitchen picnic area at the east entrance to the monument.
Salazar will discuss the change with members of the Colorado National Monument Association and monument Superintendent Joan Anzelmo.
Buck, the Weld County district attorney, will rally with supporters from 8:40 to 9 a.m. Thursday on the steps of the old Mesa County Courthouse, 544 Rood Ave.
Both events are open to the public.
Salazar faces Republican Scott Tipton, a Cortez businessman, and Buck is challenging Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet in the general election.
