Colorado Latinos for Obama

"The time has come for a president who has lived the American dream, who is on our side. A president who will cut our dependence on foreign oil and lead us into the new energy frontier. A president who will make us stronger and safer as Americans. A president who will make health care available to every American. A president who will make sure that no matter who you are, no matter where you're from, if you work hard, you too can live the American dream. That is the president that Barack Obama will be. That is why I proudly second the nomination of Barack Obama for President of the United States of America." - US Senator Ken Salazar
