President Joe Biden arrived in Denver Tuesday afternoon first for a campaign fundraiser in the Mile High City before traveling to Pueblo on Wednesday for a tour of a wind power plant.

Air Force One landed at Denver International Airport at around 4:30 p.m. after Biden attended a memorial service in Atlanta for former first lady Rosaylnn Carter.

It was likely Biden's arrival, originally scheduled for 4:15 p.m. at DIA would be delayed due to the memorial.

Biden was greeted by Colorado Governor Jared Polis and Denver Mayor Mike Johnston at the airport.

Biden is expected to stay the night in Denver before making his way to Pueblo on Wednesday and then will return to the White House later in the day.

The president’s trip to Colorado was rescheduled for this week after Biden postponed the visit in October to focus on the conflict in the Middle East.

In Pueblo, Biden will tour the CS Wind power plant, which earlier this year announced plans to double in size and create more jobs in Colorado.

The White House released the president's schedule for Wednesday and he is expected to depart Denver International Airport at 11:10 a.m. and arrive in Pueblo at 11:55 a.m.

The tour of CS Wind is scheduled at 12:35 p.m. and then Biden will leave Pueblo at 3:05 p.m.

Governor Jared Polis welcomed Biden ahead of his visit on Tuesday championing the renewable energy efforts at CS Wind.

“Colorado is leading the nation in transitioning to 100 percent renewable energy, and our wind manufacturing capabilities are helping to power our clean energy economy, create jobs, and save people money on electricity,” said Colorado Governor Jared Polis in a news release. “I appreciate the President’s partnership on Colorado’s comprehensive plans to fix our roads, and bridges and our overall efforts to add more rail and train options for Coloradans so people can get to work and where they want to go faster, safer, and more efficiently.”

The head of CS Wind said in April the organization intended to create 850 more jobs in Colorado.
