Mitt Romney Visits Food Bank In Fire-Stricken Colorado

Posted: Updated:

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is visiting a food bank in southern Colorado that's working to help victims of the region's wildfires.

Romney on Tuesday stopped by Care and Share in Colorado Springs to help box up food for firefighters and people displaced by the fires that have wracked the state this summer.

He urged Americans to visit Colorado despite the fires to keep its tourism industry thriving. He toured the food bank and met behind closed doors with victims of the fires.

Romney is set to fly to Houston Tuesday evening ahead of a planned speech to the NAACP annual convention on Wednesday morning.
