Mark Udall returns from the wilderness as a Hillary surrogate
Former Democratic U.S. Sen. Mark Udall largely disappeared from political life in Colorado after his defeat by Cory Gardner in 2014. Word is that he’s spent a lot of time hiking, completing the Colorado Trail and rafting the Grand Canyon.
But Udall is back in the fold, scheduled to speak as a surrogate for Hillary Clinton Wednesday, Sept. 28 at 10 a.m. at the Westin Denver Downtown.
“This will be Senator Udall’s first major speech on behalf of the Clinton campaign and we hope you will be able to join us to hear Secretary Clinton’s plans for outdoor recreation and our public lands,” according to Andrew Pappas, a lobbyist for the Outdoor Industry Association.
Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper, a name in the mix for a cabinet position should Clinton be elected, will also be there. Hickenlooper is scheduled to close out the event with a riff on what Colorado is doing to “support and grow the outdoor recreation economy,” according to a statement.
