Election 2020 Elizabeth Warren Julian Castro

Former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro will campaign for Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren up and down the Front Range this weekend, just days before Colorado's presidential primary ballots go in the mail to voters, her campaign announced.

Castro, who endorsed the Massachusetts senator last month after ending his presidential campaign, is scheduled to attend events in Denver, Boulder and Manitou Springs during a two-day swing on Friday and Saturday.

Warren is one of 15 Democrats on the ballot in Colorado, which holds its first presidential primary in decades on March 3. She held a town hall-style rally in Aurora in April.

On Friday, Castro plans to attend a meet-and-greet with supporters at the University of Colorado Boulder, followed by helping kick off a canvas launch in Boulder and a debate watch party in Denver that evening.

Seven of the Democratic hopefuls, including Warren, have qualified for Friday night's debate, which is hosted by ABC News and will take place in New Hampshire, four days before that state's first-in-the-nation primary. 

Castro will be on hand to help launch canvasses Saturday afternoon in Manitou Springs and Denver.

It will be the former San Antonio mayor's first visit to Colorado since the 2020 race got under way.
