A crowd gathers at the Republican Party booth at the Colorado State Fair on Friday, Aug. 31. Pueblo County voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 election, the first time the county has swung for the Republican presidential candidate since Nixon in 1972. Pueblo County Republican Party Chairperson Marla Spinuzzi Reichert attributes the shift to people voting for their families, and Trump’s platform supporting those values.
