PUEBLO, Colo. — Hillary Clinton made a campaign stop in Pueblo Wednesday, at the Colorado State Fairgrounds. It’s her first stop in Colorado in two months.

This visit just a few days before ballots are mailed out to Colorado voters and less than 30 days until the actual election.

The fairgrounds were buzzing with a couple thousand people from all over southern Colorado to see the democratic presidential nominee.

Some excited supporters even said they waited hours to hear what Hillary Clinton had to say.

“I’ve been in line since about nine o clock this morning and just so much energy, so much excitement,” said MaryJo Glavich. “Even though it was cold outside, people were just talking. I made three new friends today just standing in line waiting to see Hillary.”

It was standing room only as hundreds of people filled the walkways. Senator Michael Bennet warmed up the crowd before Hillary Clinton took the stage.

“The first time I came to this beautiful place and I had a chance to meet people from here was in 1992.” Clinton said, “I was here for somebody else, namely my husband who was running for president.”

In true Clinton fashion, she hit on issues like immigration, social security and student loan debt.

Clinton said, “It is wrong that you can refinance a home and refinance a car but you can’t refinance your student debt and we’re going to make it possible for you to pay it back as a percentage of your income.”

We only saw one or two Donald Trump supporters outside and about the same amount of Gary Johnson supporters, though a heckler holding pictures of Trump’s face did get escorted from the rally.

However Clinton supporters say they like what they’re hearing.

“She actually has a plan and experience and wants to change the country for the better which I don’t know if you can say any of those things about her opponent,” said Greg Harden.

Meanwhile, Wiki-Leaks released about 1,200 more emails saying they were hacked from Hillary Clinton’s campaign chair John Podesta’s personal account. Since Friday, Oct. 7th more than 6,500 messages have been leaked from the Clinton campaign.
