Hewlett Packard Enterprise CEO Meg Whitman, whose failed California gubernatorial bid in 2010 marked one of the few Republican losses for that year, will appear in Colorado later this week to campaign for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
Whitman is expected to tout Clinton's jobs plan in Denver Tuesday. She will be joined by other business leaders from the Centennial State.
The CEO's visit comes not long after Clinton met personally with small business owners in the state.
"Earlier this year, Clinton visited Denver to unveil her plan to leverage technology to create good-paying jobs, support young entrepreneurs, and ensure that every American has access to high-speed broadband," the Democratic candidate's campaign said in a press release Monday evening. "Her vision for an America that is stronger together and her plans to create jobs and help businesses succeed comes as Trump continues to avoid discussing his long record of bankruptcies, failed businesses, and unpaid contractors."
The Republican's visit to Colorado also comes shortly after she announced this month that she couldn't vote for GOP nominee Donald Trump.
"To vote Republican out of party loyalty alone would be to endorse a candidacy that I believe has exploited anger, grievance, xenophobia and racial division," she wrote in an essay titled "Who I'm Voting for and Why." "Donald Trump's demagoguery has undermined the fabric of our national character."
She accused Trump of being "reckless" and "uninformed" on an array of issues, including immigration and foreign policy.
"Therefore, I have decided to support Hillary Rodham Clinton. It is clear to me that Secretary Clinton's temperament, global experience and commitment to America's bedrock national values make her the far better choice in 2016 for President of the United States," she wrote.
"In a tumultuous world, America needs the kind of stable and aspirational leadership Secretary Clinton can provide. I urge all Republicans to reject Donald Trump this November," she added.
