Jimmy Sengenberger was that way-older-than-his-years, way-ahead-of-the-pack kind of kid you sort of admired and sort of envied — and, admit it, sort of resented — back in middle school.

DENVER — Good morning and Happy Friday. While Hillary Clinton cut ad buys in Colorado in the midst of a huge boost in the state's polls, Donald Trump isn't done with the state, at least not yet. But he may be soon, depending on what happens in the next couple of weeks, according to sources. He will return to the Centennial State for campaign events in Pueblo and Grand Junction Tuesday, as the Statesman's Ernest Luning broke the news. Read on for more in Colorado politics including the recent Mike Coffman "controversy," as the Democratic Party continues to strategically attempt to lash him and U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton — the two Republicans with the most on the line this election cycle — to Trump's campaign. Have a great weekend on the campaign trail whether you're the trailblazer or sitting back in the voters' wagon train.
