Rep. Perlmutter’s Supermarket Meeting Postponed

LAKEWOOD, Colo. (AP) – Colorado congressman Ed Perlmutter has postponed a meeting he planned with constituents at a grocery store, but not because of safety concerns.

Perlmutter’s office says his “government in the grocery” gathering originally scheduled over Presidents Day weekend had to be delayed by one week because of continuing debate in Washington over the federal budget.

The gathering will be held this coming Saturday instead. It will be the suburban Denver Democrat’s first “government in the grocery” gathering since the shootings in Tucson, Ariz.

Perlmutter suspended such meetings after Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and others were shot Jan. 8 at a meeting she was hosting at a Safeway store in Tucson.
