DENVER (AP) - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is coming to Colorado to meet with small business owners in Aurora.
The former Massachusetts governor is set to meet with the group Monday at the Brewery Bar. Romney also plans to hold a private fundraiser and a reception for his presidential exploratory committee in Cherry Hills Village in the evening.
He's getting support from some leading Republicans in Colorado. According the fundraising invitation, former Gov. Bill Owens and former Sen. Hank Brown are serving as honorary co-chairs of Romney's campaign in Colorado. The honorary hosts of the event include former Sen. Wayne Allard, Colorado state treasurer Walker Stapleton, Attorney General John Suthers and former congressman Bob Beauprez.
Romney has been leading in national polls and is considered the nominal frontrunner for the 2012 race.
