President Trump on Thursday rallied with supporters in Colorado, seeking to boost vulnerable GOP Sen. Cory Gardner (Colo.) as the state's Senate election this coming November could help determine which party will control the upper chamber.
Trump exuded confidence in his remarks to thousands of supporters in Colorado Springs, predicting a strong showing for his campaign in November.
"We are going to win Colorado in a landslide," Trump declared to the thousands of supporters. "And you’re going to help us get Cory Gardner across that line because he’s been with us 100 percent. There was no waver."
The president lost Colorado and its nine electoral votes in 2016 by about 5 percentage points, or roughly 136,000 votes. Democrats retained control of the governor's mansion in the 2018 election and flipped one House seat as the state becomes more solidly blue.
