DENVER – Donald Trump will be back in Colorado next Monday as polls continue to show the state is once again in play for the Republican candidate for president.

Trump will hold a rally at the Budweiser Events Center in Loveland next Monday, Oct. 3. Doors to the event are set to open at 3 p.m.

As news spread of his visit to the Centennial State, Rick Palacio, the Chair of the Colorado Democratic Party, released the following statement:

"There's no more appropriate time for Donald Trump to visit Colorado than October -- National Bullying Prevention Month. Trump's visit to Loveland is simply another opportunity for Coloradans to see that he sounds just as divisive and hateful in person as he does on TV.

"From his public shaming of women over their weight and appearance to his repeated insults toward Gold Star parents to his attacks on an American-born federal judge over his Mexican-American heritage, Trump has proven over and over that he just doesn't have the temperament to be president -- or to set the right example for our kids."  

The campaign also announced Wednesday it is spending an extra $2 million in advertising in the state.

Trump was most recently in the state Sept. 18, when he campaigned in Colorado Springs for the second time this year.

And on Sept. 22, Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, visited the state, as did Donald Trump Jr. and Trump’s running mate, Mike Pence.

Ivanka Trump went to a breakfast at the Colorado Women’s Alliance in Denver before touring Liberty Common High School in Fort Collins. Trump Jr. held a rally at the Mesa County Fairgrounds that evening, while Pence spoke at a town hall meeting at the Hillside Community Center in Colorado Springs.

Colorado seemed out-of-play for Trump earlier this year, but a Quinnipiac Poll released last week showed Trump and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton tied in a head-to-head matchup in the state.

A CNN/ORC poll released Monday showed Trump up by one point in a four-way race and Clinton leading Trump 49-47 in a head-to-head matchup.

Anyone wishing to attend the rally can find tickets here.
