Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump will return to Colorado Springs on Tuesday, as mail ballots begin arriving at voters’ homes for Colorado’s first all-mail presidential election.
He will host a 1 p.m. rally at the Norris-Penrose Event Center, 1045 Lower Gold Camp Road. Free tickets are available at donaldjtrump.com/schedule.
Trump was in Pueblo on Oct. 3, defending his massive business losses and tax deductions revealed in a story by The New York Times two days earlier. Trump told the crowd that he navigated through tough times in business with the help of his skill with the nation’s tax laws.
Once considered a swing state, Colorado has provided his opponent, Democrat Hillary Clinton, a lead in recent nonpartisan polls.
Trump made his first general election stop in Colorado on July 1 alongside Sarah Palin at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver. He spoke in Colorado Springs on July 29, causing a flap when he called Fire Marshal Brett Lacey a Clinton supporter for enforcing safety rules in the auditorium the campaign booked for the rally at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs.
Trump also campaigned in Colorado Springs on Sept. 17.
Ballots will be mailed starting Monday. For more on the candidates and races, go to gazette.com/voterguide.
