DENVER – Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is joining the last-minute campaign rush in Colorado this weekend.

The senator and former candidate for the Democratic nomination for president is set to campaign in Colorado Springs and Aurora this Saturday, Nov. 5.

His Aurora visit will be a campaign event for congressional candidate Morgan Carroll. It is scheduled for 7 p.m.

Sanders’ visit to the Centennial State will come on the heels of a busy week in Colorado politics.

Former President Bill Clinton will hold rallies for his wife, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, in Pueblo, Denver and Fort Collins Friday.

Donald Trump Jr. is campaigning in Fort Collins Thursday for his father, and Mike Pence and Chelsea Clinton have also visited the state this week. Newt Gingrich also campaigned in Colorado Wednesday.

Dr. Ben Carson and Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin will campaign for Trump Friday afternoon in Colorado Springs and Aurora.

The rush for some last-minute face time in Colorado comes as the most-recent polls show the race tightening here; a University of Denver poll released Wednesday showed Clinton and Trump were in a dead heat in a four-way race.
