Mitt Romney on Tuesday addressed over 10,000 people outside of Denver, Colorado and said the presidential debates have "supercharged" his campaign.
After the first presidential debate in Denver, a lopsided victory for the GOP candidate, the presidential race flipped, with Romney becoming the frontrunner in the polls.
And the crowd that greeted Romney at Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado, showed the momentum on Romney's side not just in Colorado but across the nation.
The amphitheater holds roughly 10,000 people. According to various news outlets, up to 25,000 tickets may have been requested, and thousands were turned away from the event because the venue was filled to capacity.
New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez and Paul Ryan introduced Romney. Musicians Kid Rock and Rodney Adkins entertained the crowd.
"What a place this is," Romney said. "This is a magnificent place for a guy born in Detroit."
Romney seemed overwhelmed with emotion as he looked out to the crowd and seemed like he was about to choke up while looking at "these extraordinary mountains" that were "the handiwork of our Creator."
"Nothing more impressive than the handiwork of creating a child of God, and we're all brothers and sisters in a human family that right now wants to see the kind of leadership America wants to bring to the world," Romney said.
