Republican presidential hopeful, Donald J. Trump will host a rally in Loveland, Colorado on Monday, Oct. 3 at 6 p.m.

The rally is scheduled to occur at the Budweiser Event Center, 15 miles south of campus. Doors will open at 3 p.m.


Tickets are on a first come first serve basis with registration on Donald Trump’s website. Only two tickets will be registered per mobile number.

According to the latest election polls from the New York Times, Trump is polling lower than his opponent, Hillary Clinton. With six weeks until the general election, Clinton is polling three points higher than him, 45 percent to 42 percent.

Colorado is a crucial swing state in the general election, and the purple state has tended to vote Democratic, but its nine electoral votes are up for grabs.

Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, visited Fort Collins’ charter school Liberty Common last Thursday. Trump also hosted a fundraising event in Aspen, CO in late August.

Hillary Clinton’s last visit to Colorado was in early August and no major players from her campaign have visited Colorado since, according to the Associated Press.

To get to the rally, the Flex regional bus for northern Colorado runs from various Fort Collins locations including the CSU Transit Center and Downtown Transit Center to 8th Street in Loveland. The Flex is free for students with a valid student ID.
