COLUMBUS, OHIO--Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) is headed to battlegrounds Colorado and Nevada to help boost President Barack Obama and other Democrats with Hispanic voters and on Monday will do a media blitz with Spanish language outlets to spur turnout the day before the election.
Gutierrez, is headed to Colorado Friday and Nevada on Saturday for campaign swings to talk to Latino voters and others. He will be in the Denver area doing events around that region for Obama and House candidates Ed Perlmutter (CO-7) and Diana DeGette (CO-1).
I'm told he will be "meeting with Latino small business owners and doing a ton of Spanish language radio, TV and print interviews. Then he will be in Reno for Obama and Senate candidate Shelley Berkley talking to Spanish language media and campaign canvassers and supporters. Gutierrez has traveled to Nevada several times this year for Obama and Berkley, but this is his first trip to Colorado. He will be back in Chicago Monday and will be doing media hits for Obama, especially in Spanish language media, in the last minute GOTV phase."
