DENVER – Former Vice President Al Gore will make what is likely to be the final Colorado stump stop in the 2016 presidential election Monday night in Jefferson County.

In the final week ahead of the Nov. 8 General Election, both major campaigns have blitzed Colorado, which is traditionally a swing state and is likely to again play a major role in deciding our country’s next president.

Republican nominee Donald Trump made his final stop in Colorado Sunday night when he held a rally in Denver.

His running mate, Gov. Mike Pence, and surrogates Newt Gingrich, Donald Trump Jr., Ben Carson and Gov. Mary Fallin all made appearances in various places in Colorado last week.

Former President Bill Clinton campaigned for his wife, Hillary, in Pueblo, Denver and Fort Collins on Friday.

Chelsea Clinton stopped in Aurora and Boulder earlier in the week while campaigning for her mother, and former Democratic candidate and current Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders held rallies for Clinton and other down-ballot Democrats in Colorado Springs and the Denver area.

Even Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson got in on the last-minute campaigning in Colorado last week, when he held a campaign event in Lakewood on Sunday.

Gore has two events scheduled for Monday: a get out the vote rally in Boulder at 4 p.m. at 1535 Spruce St.; and another get out the vote rally at the Lakewood Cultural Center Theater, which is scheduled to start at 7 p.m.

The blitz of Colorado by both campaigns comes as recent polls in Colorado show Clinton’s once-large gap has narrowed considerably in recent weeks.

Monday’s early-voting tally in Colorado shows Republicans have so far submitted more ballots than Democrats and unaffiliated voters.
