APTOPIX Election 2020 Bernie Sanders

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., with his wife Jane O'Meara Sanders, arrives to speak to supporters at a primary night election rally in Manchester, N.H., on Tuesday, Feb. 11, 2020.

Fresh off his win in the New Hampshire primary, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has scheduled a campaign rally in downtown Denver on Sunday.

The Vermont senator will appear at the 5,000-seat capacity Bellco Theater inside the Colorado Convention Center, according to his campaign site. The rally starts at 6 p.m., and he doors open at 4 p.m.

Colorado voters have begun to receive their ballots for the March 3 "Super Tuesday" presidential primary in the mail this week.

Sanders edged Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Ind., by just over 1 percentage point Tuesday in New Hampshire's first-in-the-nation primary. The two ended in a virtual tie a week earlier in the Iowa caucuses.

Buttigieg is planning to hold a town hall in Aurora on Feb. 22.

Sunday's rally will be the second event Sanders has held in Colorado since declaring his candidacy. In September, he called on 10,000 people at Denver's Civic Center to "wage a political revolution," vowing to enact Medicare for All and the Green New Deal if elected president.

Sanders held a rally inside the Colorado Convention Center four years ago, ahead of his 20-point win over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in Colorado's caucuses.
