As Joe St. George reports for Fox 31 Denver, Vice President Mike Pence will be in Colorado next week to raise money for the 2020 re-election campaigns of President Trump and Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Yuma):
Vice President Mike Pence will visit Colorado next week. He will be in the state until Tuesday.
According to a White House source, Pence will help Senator Cory Gardner’s reelection effort in Windsor, Co — a rural community north of Denver. The event in Winsor is not expected to be a public event. It will be a private fundraiser according to sources.
Additionally, Pence will be in Aspen for a Trump Victory Fundraiser and the Republican Governor’s Association Quarterly Meeting.
Vice President Pence’s previous fundraising visits to Colorado have been met with fairly…unenthusiastic crowds. When Pence visited Colorado last October, in fact, quite literally no Colorado politicians were on hand to greet his arrival at Buckley Air Force Base.
We’ll be interested to see if Pence’s Windsor visit attracts more than just a few crickets — and whether this fundraiser for Gardner will be worthy of the Yuma Senator’s own attendance. Gardner kicked off his 2020 re-election effort in Washington D.C. earlier this year but has yet to hold a major campaign event inside the borders of Colorado.
Either way, here’s hoping some of that world-famous Colorado BBQ is on the menu in Windsor.
