Udall invokes family ties to the West in his nomination speech

COLORADO SPRINGS ” Mark Udall invoked his family ties to the West Saturday in an acceptance speech after Democrats nominated him to run for the U.S. Senate and worked to select delegates to the party’s national convention.

Udall, a U.S. representative from Boulder County, is opposing former Republican Rep. Bob Schaffer in the race to replace retiring Republican Sen. Wayne Allard.

During his speech, Udall told the crowd gathered in this Republican stronghold city south of Denver that, if elected, he would support alternative energy development, affordable health care and a plan to get the United States out of Iraq.

He was heckled several times when he criticized the war in Iraq, with protesters noting Udall also voted to fund the war. Udall didn’t respond.
