Steamboat Springs U.S. Sen. Wayne Allard, R-Colo., will hold a town meeting from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. today at Centennial Hall to talk with residents.
Allard is up for re-election in November and could be in another tight race against Tom Strickland.
The meeting is part of Allard's pledge to hold at least one town meeting in each of Colorado's 64 counties annually.
"I want to extend an invitation to everyone in Steamboat Springs, Hayden and Routt County to attend a very informal community meeting," Allard said. "This is a chance for citizens to visit one on one with me about issues important to them."
Allard is a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee where he is the ranking member of the Strategic Subcommittee; the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee where he is the ranking member of the Housing and Transportation Subcommittee; the Senate Budget Committee; and the Senate Agriculture Committee.
Allard has been forecast by some media outlets and strategists to be a potentially vulnerable incumbent.
