COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson is coming to Colorado Springs.

The El Paso County Republicans said Carson will hold a rally Thursday at 6 p.m. at America the Beautiful Park. It will be free and open to the public.

Organizers said Bishop Michael Sheridan of the Diocese of Colorado Springs will say the invocation, and Congressman Doug Lamborn will introduce Carson.

Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, is one of 17 people in the running for the Republican nomination for president. He’s the first 2016 candidate to visit Colorado Springs.
