Clinton, Pence Campaigning In Colorado

· Aug. 3, 2016, 4:05 pm

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence are campaigning in Colorado on Wednesday.

Clinton is scheduled to tour a small business in Denver before holding a rally at Adams City High School in Commerce City for her first public campaign event in Colorado since securing the nomination. Her visit is to specifically to talk about her jobs program, pushing the idea of creating more as soon as she's inaugurated if she wins the election. Clinton will be with her running mate Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia.

Donald Trump's running mate Gov. Mike Pence is scheduled to hold a town hall meeting in Denver on Wednesday afternoon and then attend a rally in Colorado Springs in the evening. The Indiana governor is visiting the state after campaigning in Nevada and Arizona this week.

Pence is breaking with the Republican nominee by endorsing House Speaker Paul Ryan in his primary fight.

Pence said in a phone interview with Fox News Channel that he's pleased to endorse Ryan.

The move comes a day after Trump said in an interview that he's "just not quite there yet" when it comes to backing Ryan, who has at times been critical of Trump's most controversial comments.

Pence says that he spoke with Trump Wednesday morning about his "support for Paul Ryan and our longtime friendship."

He says Trump, "strongly encouraged me to endorse Paul Ryan in next Tuesday's primary. And I'm pleased to do it."
