Two Democrats will face off in the June 26 primary for the chance to challenge Republican Mike Coffman in the suburban congressional district both sides agree could determine which party controls the House. Delegates awarded spots on the primary ballot to Jason Crow, an attorney and Army combat veteran, and Levi Tillemann, a clean energy expert and author, at the 6th Congressional District Democratic assembly Thursday night in Aurora.

Officials say the Obama administration in its waning hours defied Republican opposition and quietly released $221 million to the Palestinian Authority that GOP members of Congress had been blocking. A State Department official and several congressional aides said the outgoing administration formally notified Congress it would spend the money Friday morning. The official said former Secretary of State John Kerry had informed some lawmakers of the move shortly before he left the State Department for the last time Thursday. The aides said written notification dated Jan. 20 was sent to Congress just hours before Donald Trump took the oath of office.

America received a new president last week who brings to Colorado the same controversies that marked his tumultuous election campaign. The inauguration ceremonies in Washington included thousands of Coloradans who came to either protest or support Donald Trump. Heather Toth, Colorado organizer of the Women’s March on Washington, said she marched in Washington to let Trump know, “Hey, we didn’t vote for you but we matter as much as the people who did vote for you.”

President Donald Trump opened his first full day as president Saturday at a national prayer service, the final piece of transition business for the nation's new chief executive before a promised full-on shift into governing. Trump and his wife, Melania, and Vice President Mike Pence and his wife, Karen, sat in a front pew at Washington National Cathedral for the morning service after a day of pomp, pageantry and protests that accompanied his Friday inauguration. The interfaith service is a tradition for new presidents and is hosted by the Episcopal parish, but the decision to hold a prayer session for Trump sparked debate among Episcopalians opposed to his policies.

Pledging to empower America's "forgotten men and women," Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States Friday, taking command of a deeply divided nation and ushering in an unpredictable era in Washington. His victory gives Republicans control of the White House for the first time in eight years. Looking out over the crowd sprawled across the National Mall, Trump painted a bleak picture of the nation he now leads, lamenting crime, shuttered factories and depleted American leadership. He vowed to stir "new national pride," bring jobs back to the United States, and "eradicate completely" Islamic terrorism.
