MORRISON, Colo. (CBS4) – Thousands of cars filled Colorado’s interstates on Sunday as Trump supporters took to the streets at the “MAGA Drag the Interstate” rally two days before the 2020 election. From Pueblo to Fort Collins, and everywhere in between, people on two wheels and four weeks came to the Denver area and rallied at Bandimere Speedway in Morrison, then made a loop around the metro area decked out in red, white and blue.

NB I-25 is just about gridlocked from Orchard Road all the way to at least 6th Ave with trucks/cars touting Trump flags, American flags and don’t tread on me flag’s. I’ve never seen anything like this. #Election2020
