Karissa Miller

Former republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz will hold a rally in Loveland for Darryl Glenn, a U.S. Senate candidate on Wednesday, Oct. 26.

The event begins at 11 a.m. and goes until 12:15 p.m. at the Embassy Suites Hilton conference center. Registration is required for the event and can be found on the Darryl Glenn website.


Facing incumbent U.S. Senator Michael Bennet, Glenn is polling at 35.8 percent whereas Bennet is sitting at 51 percent, which is 15.2 percent higher, according to the latest Politico poll.

Currently serving his second term as the El Paso County District 1 Commissioner, Glenn serves a district of over 130,000 people. He is a lawyer, a retired Air Force officer and owns a small business.

Cruz, R-Texas, endorsed Glenn in mid-June. Congressman Ken Buck, R-Colo., will be joining the rally as well.

Considered a fiscal conservative, Glenn has worked towards cutting government waste and was in charge of several positions that require the oversight of multi-billion dollar programs, according to his website.

Considered one of three swing counties in Colorado, Larimer County includes Fort Collins, Loveland and Estes Park, and runs up to the Wyoming border. The other swing counties in Colorado are Jefferson and Arapahoe counties.

According to Politico, these three swing counties accounted for 30 percent of Colorado voters for President Barrack Obama in 2008. Holding a large portion of undecided voters, the Larimer, Jefferson, and Arapahoe counties are crucial battle grounds for someone trying to win over the Colorado population.
