AURORA, Colo. – Campaign adviser Lara Trump will hold a campaign event in Aurora on Feb. 19 – a day before another campaign rally featuring the president in Colorado Springs.

The event will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 19 at 6:30 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Aurora-Denver, located at 13200 E 14th Place in Aurora. Doors are set to open at 5:30 p.m. to the general public.

According to a release from the campaign and Colorado GOP, the event is a “keep America Great” rally that “will highlight the accomplishments of the Administration and the commitments of the President.”

The release says that senior campaign adviser Lara Trump, who is Eric Trump’s wife, will be at the event.

The Trump campaign on Thursday announced a rally with the president and Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., to be hosted at The Broadmoor World Arena in Colorado Springs on Feb. 20 at 5 p.m. Trump had vowed to come to Colorado to campaign with Gardner after both endorsed one another for re-election.

In a statement Thursday, Gardner spokesperson Jerrod Dobkin said the Republican senator, “is looking forward to joining President Trump to tout all the great accomplishments they have delivered to Colorado, including the BLM headquarters, Space Force, delivering clean drinking water to fifty thousand Coloradans, record low unemployment, and more.”

Gardner’s campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment as to whether he would attend the Aurora event as well.

The president’s rally will happen less than two weeks before the March 3 Colorado primary on Super Tuesday.

Those wishing to attend must register on the campaign’s website beforehand.

Correction: This story has been corrected to show that the Aurora event is a Trump campaign event but that only Lara Trump will be there, not the president.
