Ritter to deliver national radio address

Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter will deliver the national Democratic radio
address at 9 a.m. Mountain/11 a.m. Eastern on Saturday, Dec. 1,
addressing the positive, problem-solving vision for the country
offered by moderate Western Democrats. Gov. Ritter also will discuss
Colorado’s New Energy Economy and the need for a new direction to move
the nation forward.

“I was asked to speak in my capacity as a new governor with new ideas,
and as the host governor for the 2008 Democratic National Convention,”
Gov. Ritter said. “It’s a great honor to give a national address, and
I think the can-do spirit we embody here in Colorado speaks to what
people around the country want from their leaders and from the next
President of the United States.”

The address will be available nationwide on major radio networks,
including AP, ABC, NPR, CBS Radio, CNN Radio, C-SPAN, Armed Forces
Radio Network, American Urban Radio Network, Voice of America Radio
Network, BBC Radio, CBC Radio and the Australian Broadcasting
