Hillary Clinton is returning to Colorado this week with a visit Wednesday to Pueblo in the southern part of the state.

The Clinton campaign hasn’t been spending much ad money here, and the candidate herself hasn’t visited since early August. Vice presidential candidate Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine is in Denver today for a concert with Dave Matthews.

Donald Trump visited Pueblo earlier this month, and the Denver Post’s John Frank described it as the part of the state that is crucial for Trump if he’s to win Colorado. It’s heavily Latino and heavily blue-collar.

Clinton will visit a public voter registration event and focus on the importance of registering and voting, her campaign said in a press release.

The event will take place at 1:45 p.m. at the Palace of Agriculture at the Colorado State Fair and Rodeo, 1001 Beulah Ave., Pueblo. Doors open at 11:45 a.m.

If you want to attend the rally, you can RSVP here.
