Former President George W. Bush has made an appearance in Colorado, speaking to an insurance industry group in Colorado Springs. Bush's spokesman, David Sherzer, says Bush spoke Tuesday to the Council of Insurance Agents & Brokers at The Broadmoor hotel.
The event was closed to the public.
Sherzer says he doesn't know what Bush's topic was. Sherzer says Bush will have about 70 speaking engagements this year. He declined to say what type of fee Bush commands.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney was to speak to the group Monday. Neither Cheney's spokesman nor officials with the insurance group immediately returned calls.
Bill Sulzman of Citizens for Peace in Space says 15 to 20 people protested at the hotel Monday and again Tuesday.
