Democratic vice presidential nominee Joe Biden plans to take his bus tour through Colorado on Tuesday and Wednesday with “Early Vote for Change” rallies scheduled for Greeley, Commerce City, Colorado Springs and Pueblo. It will be Biden’s first visit to the state since accepting his party’s nod at the Democratic National Convention in August and comes a day after Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin barnstorms the state.
Set to coincide with the start of early voting in Colorado this week, Biden’s visit kicks off with a rally at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday at Butler-Hancock Gymnasium on the University of Northern Colorado campus, 501 20th Ave., in Greeley. Tickets aren’t required, but the Obama campaign urges supporters to RSVP.
