On Saturday, the Romney campaign hosted the grand opening of its state headquarters in Lakewood. Over 200 "fired up" volunteers stopped by to check out the campaign’s new digs.
Tweeted Lynn Bartels:

CBS4 also stopped by and interviewed former Congressman Bob Beauprez, who praised the campaign for its strategic thinking by locating in Lakewood. According to Beauprez:
“If you understand Colorado politics, you understand that it is very difficult to put together the numbers to win statewide unless you have Jefferson and Arapahoe Counties. So, the selection of this headquarters, in this location is very strategic.”
According to the Secretary of State’s end of month voter registration stats on June 1, Jeffco’s registration is 37% Republican, 31% Democrat, and 31% Unaffiliated; Arapahoe County’s registration doesn’t look much different with 37% Republican, 33% Democrat, and 30% Unaffiliated.
Translation: Republicans appear to be the ones fired up and ready to go this year.
