DENVER (CBS4) – Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders will stop in Denver for a rally. It’s the Vermont senator’s first visit to Denver during the 2020 presidential campaign.
The Sanders rally will be at Civic Center Park on Monday, Sept. 9 at 6 p.m. Doors will open to the public at 4:30 p.m. The event is free. Tickets are not required, but an RSVP is encouraged.
Bernie Sanders made several stops in Colorado during his losing bid for the Democratic nomination in 2016, and Colorado delegates favored Sanders over his competitor Hillary Clinton.
In 2018, Sanders returned to the Centennial state to throw his support behind would-be Gov. Jared Polis and other progressive Democratic candidates.
In April, Polis announced Colorado will join others in holding a presidential primary on Super Tuesday, March 3. He said it was in hopes of luring more presidential contenders to the state. (Unaffiliated voters will be able to vote in the presidential primary, but only by picking one party.)
Sen. Kamala Harris campaigned in Denver in early August and former Vice President Joe Biden announced plans to make a campaign stop in Denver in late September. His September campaign travel schedule includes a stop in Denver on Sept. 28.
