DENVER – Democratic presidential candidate and U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., will make a campaign stop in Denver on Aug. 2, her campaign announced Wednesday.

Harris will be the fourth Democratic 2020 presidential candidate to make public appearances in Colorado thus far. U.S. Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar have visited, as has Montana Gov. Steve Bullock. The Colorado Sun, Aspen Times and CNBC have reported that Cory Booker and Kirsten Gillibrand made private fundraising appearances in Aspen and Denver, respectively.

The Denver Post was the first to report Harris' visit to Denver on Wednesday.

The event will be held at Denver's Manual High School, located at 1700 E. 28th Ave. Doors to the event will open at 5:15 p.m., the campaign said.

Harris’ campaign says she will hold a campaign organizing event and share her “3AM Agenda,” which includes items on boosting tax credits for middle and working-class families, increasing teacher pay, Medicare For All and equal pay for women, among other things.

Harris is one of the top four Democrats in the polls thus far, joining former Vice President and Sen. Joe Biden, Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Vice President Mike Pence was in Colorado on Monday campaigning in support of President Trump and U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo.

Colorado’s presidential primary will take place on Super Tuesday next year, March 3. People interested in attending Harris’ event can RSVP at the campaign’s website.
