Another postcard from Colorado: AAM field coordinators cross the aisle

Posted by mmcmullan on 05/09/2014

The Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) was well received last month by the more than 4,000 in attendance at the Colorado Republican Party’s assembly in Boulder. Rachel Bennett Steury and I were able to discuss the subject of currency manipulation with state and local party delegates – many of whom signed a letter that will be going to their representative in Congress. Much interest by members of Congress who passed through the convention about AAM as well. 

And on a lighter note: Steve Laffey, who is running for Congress in Colorado, and his family took a moment at the AAM booth to share with us that his shirt, jeans, boots, and hat were all proudly Made In America!

This post was written by AAM Field Coordinator Ken Poweski. For an earlier postcard, see this dispatch from Colorado's Democratic Party convention.
