AURORA | Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders will campaign in Highlands Ranch Saturday evening for Democratic state Sen. Morgan Carroll, according to Carroll’s campaign officials.
The event was first slated for Aurora, but now Sanders is expected to speak at about 6 p.m., at Thunder Ridge High School, 1991 West Wildcat Reserve Parkway in Highlands Ranch, according to campaign spokesman Drew Godinich.
“Obviously we are thrilled,” Godinich said.
The announcement comes on the heels of President Barack Obama first endorsing and then cutting a TV commercial this week for Morgan in her effort to unseat GOP incumbent Mike Coffman for the 6th Congressional seat.
While early voting had been favoring Democrats in the district, returned ballots showed registered Republican voters closing the gap in Arapahoe and Douglas counties as of Thursday.
