PUEBLO, Colo. — Hillary Clinton campaigned in Pueblo Wednesday afternoon.

A rally was held at the Palace of Agriculture on the Colorado State Fairgrounds.

Clinton started her 35-minute speech by encouraging Coloradans to return their mail-in ballots. She then spoke about central issues in her campaign, including reducing student loan debt, expanding Social Security, raising the minimum wage, and reforming immigration.

She congratulated Pueblo on its success in the steel industry, and said that if opponent Donald Trump “wants to make American great again, he should start by using American steel.”

This was Clinton’s first campaign stop in southern Colorado. Republican nominee Donald Trump has spoken twice in Colorado Springs and once in Pueblo.

Video from the speech will be available on this page later today.
