BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Republican presidential hopefuls don’t take the debate stage in Boulder until tomorrow.

But plenty of groups are lining up to tell the GOP candidates what to say.

The events start Tuesday, when former Interior Secretary and Colorado native Ken Salazar joins other Democrats to urge the candidates to talk about climate change and land protection.

Other groups are planning press events leading up to the CNBC debate Wednesday evening. Some groups are talking about Latino voter registration, and others are talking about reproductive rights. National debates give activist groups a chance to grab media attention while reporters are in town to cover the debates.

Colorado’s marijuana industry is participating, too. A cannabis industry group is offering dispensary tours Wednesday for reporters who haven’t seen Colorado’s marijuana industry up close.
