Colorado Congressman Ed Perlmutter is meeting constituents at a grocery store in Lakewood Saturday. It's the first of Perlmutter's "Government in the Grocery" meetings since the shootings in Tucson last month that wounded Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Perlmutter has done about 70 of the informal grocery store meetings in just over four years in office. But after Tucson, he says security for the events will be a little tighter. He spoke with Colorado Public Radio's Mike Lamp.
