Photos: Mitt Romney says our rights come from God in Jeffco speech

After a week of particularly difficult headlines, and nearly two months since his last rally here, Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney returned to Colorado last night, delivering a stump speech focusing on the economy and President Barack Obama's record -- and not on the recent controversies and discouraging polls his campaign has battled. His visit comes on the heels of the president's last Colorado rally and only days before Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan is set to return -- emphasizing how key this swing state is in the final weeks before the election.
