Details of Trump’s campaign rally at CU-Colorado Springs Friday released

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will hold his campaign rally in Colorado Springs at 2 p.m. Friday at the Gallogly Events Center, on the northeast side of the CU-Colorado Springs campus.

In a communique to campus employees Wednesday, UCCS Chancellor Pam Shockley-Zalabak said that as a university, “we do not endorse a specific campaign or political agenda … we make our facilities available for lease” when not in use for educational or athletics purposes.

The Gallogly Events Center is normally used for basketball games and other indoor athletic contests, concerns and community meetings. Its largest room can seat up to 1,500. That’s well below the 3,600-seating capacity of a ballroom at the Colorado Convention Center, where Trump spoke to attendees at the Western Conservative Summit earlier this month. In that speech, his first campaign event in Colorado, the ballroom was just slightly more than half full.

The Trump campaign will handle ticket distribution, according to Zalabak’s email. Those arrangements have not yet been announced by the campaign.
