Last night at Red Rocks, presidential hopefuls Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan held their optimistically titled Victory Rally at Red Rocks. More than 10,000 people reportedly showed up and thousands were turned away. Kid Rock and Rodney Atkins both played a batch of acoustic songs. According to Brandon Marshall who was on hand last night, aside from offering up a "Go Romney! Go Ryan! Yeah!" at the end of his brief set, Kid Rock avoided any overt politicizing during the event and instead praised the troops and pointed out how we live in the greatest country in the world. Atkins, meanwhile, gave a subtle (or not so subtle, depending on how you look at it) nod to Colorado by showing up rocking a Rockies cap for his performance. Continue on to see a few pictures from last night.
