Tickets are available for Thursday’s “Get Out the Vote Tour” with Republican candidate for governor Walker Stapleton and his “special guest,” U.S. Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO).
Free “Red Wave” tickets to attend the events can be reserved on Eventbrite.
“Please join Republican Nominee for Governor, Walker Stapleton, and Special Guest Honorable Cory Gardner on Thursday, November 1st at 9:30 am for our Get Out the Vote Tour! Stapleton will be speaking to attendees about the importance of the upcoming election and volunteering to help with his fight against Congressman Jared Polis!” states the Eventbrite page for the Grand Junction stop.
Gardner’s low approval ratings in Colorado–falling even below Trump at 25 percent earlier this year–didn’t dissuade Stapleton from campaigning with Colorado’s junior senator, who’s up for re-election in 2020.
After Thursdays stops, which skirt the front range, Stapleton continues his tour without Gardner at other locations, including along the front range, through Monday.
Stapleton has repeatedly said he’d like to campaign with Trump as well, but the President’s schedule didn’t permit this, Stapleton told KNUS recently.
Democrats launched their own get-out-the-vote tour last week, featuring a blue bus that’s made stops around the state.
Joining Democratic candidate for governor Jared Polis on the bus yesterday in the Denver area were Democrats Gov. John hickenlooper, Lt. Governor Donna Lynne, former state Treasurer Cary Kennedy, Houston Mayor Annise Parker, and others. U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO) has also joined the bus along the way.
Polis appeared with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders last week.
