Two presidential candidates in Colorado Monday

KUSA - Two presidential hopefuls will stop by the Centennial State on Monday to make their cases to Colorado voters.

Republican nominee Donald Trump is set to hold a rally at Loveland’s Budweiser Events Center at 6 p.m. He'll give a speech in Pueblo 3 p.m.. 

It’s the second time in less than a month that Trump has stumped in Colorado. He was in Colorado Springs back on Sept. 17. His running mate, Gov. Mike Pence (R-Indiana), held a town hall in Colorado Springs last Thursday.

Trump comes to Colorado amid another round of controversies stemming from a late-night Twitter rant about a former Miss Universe contestant.

A Real Clear politics poll shows Trump has a slight head-to-head lead over Clinton in Colorado – a number that grows larger if you factor in Green Party nominee Jill Stein and Libertarian Gary Johnson.

The statistics-based site FiveThirtyEight, however, says Clinton has a 66 percent chance of notching all nine of Colorado’s electoral votes. 

Johnson is set to appear in Colorado on Monday in an effort to court voters who are disenchanted by both Trump and Clinton

He will speak at 7 p.m. at the UC South Denver Campus in Parker.

The latest Quinnipiac University poll shows Johnson with about 8 percent of the vote in Colorado.

The Libertarian candidate has seen his share of scrutiny as of late after asking “What is Aleppo?” during an interview on MSNBC and stumbling when asked to name a foreign leader he admires.

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is set to appear in Ohio on Monday, where she will deliver a speech on the economy and attend a voter registration event.

It’s her first campaign stop in the battleground state in 29 days.
