Romney made his first Colorado appearance since early August on Sunday night at a school on the border of Denver and Jefferson County.
He says Barack Obama has admitted he can't change Washington from the inside and that it can only be changed from the outside. Romney urged the crowd to give the president the chance to be outside Washington again after Nov. 6.
Romney appeared before an enthusiastic crowd after a rough two weeks during which he was criticized for his comments on violence in the Middle East and a secret recording in which he appeared to dismiss the 47 percent of people who don't pay income taxes.
He will be in Pueblo on Monday morning.
Late Sunday evening, the campaign announced that Romney's running mate, Paul Ryan, will attend two events in Colorado on Wednesday.
Ryan will take part in a town hall at Walker Manufacturing in Fort Collins at noon and then will head to Colorado Springs for a rally at America the Beautiful Park.
