DENVER — Mitt Romney is coming back to Denver.

The Republican presidential candidate has a Monday evening rally scheduled at Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum in Denver. That's only a week after Romney held two events along the Front Range. It's also two days before the first presidential debate at Denver University on Oct. 3.

Colorado is a vital swing state in the presidential election and the state has seen its share of political luminaries this year. Romney's running mate, Paul Ryan, had just held a Tuesday evening rally in Colorado Springs when the campaign announced Romney's visit.
