Yesterday, several members of my posse formed up at ‘o-dark-thirty’ to join with Evelyn and me for the annual Colorado Springs Western Street Breakfast. It’s a big tribute to the military community of El Paso County and the deep roots our military and veterans have here.

Many on my posse are veterans, like Evelyn and I are, so the connection we have to the military community is huge. We talked with dozens of people at the breakfast and heard from so many who had already cast their vote for me.

I even had the chance to snap a pic with Miss El Paso County…how cool is that?
