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.

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.
