It was around 6 p.m. on June 28, 2016, the night of the Democratic Primary, and our lead was holding — which was unbelievable. I had thought it almost impossible a month before. We were going to win! Jack Kroll, then the 27-year-old employee of the University of Colorado admissions department, was about to pull off the ultimate upset and be elected to the CU Board of Regents for the 1st Congressional District. I broke every speed limit in Denver on my way over to his house, yelling my head off the whole way there.

Our election process is being hijacked by big money interests, and if we don’t take a stand today, tomorrow will be too late. To save our electoral process, the Colorado General Assembly must pass a bill this session delaying the implementation of Proposition 108. Proposition 108 was passed by the voters last November but it was sold under false pretenses. Based on the 2016 presidential caucuses, there were many Democrats and Republicans who were justifiably angry that they couldn’t vote for their preferred presidential candidate.

On his last day as chairman of the Jefferson County Republican Party, Don Ytterberg had a few things to say.

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.”

You wouldn’t know it from the stock market’s record-breaking tear since Hillary Clinton snatched defeat from the jaws of victory, but the mood among Trump-averse Americans remains bleak. Blinkered with rage and disbelief because Clinton won more votes than any other presidential candidate in U.S. history (except Barack Obama in 2008), the despondent blame her stunning upset on nefarious reasons such as “whitelash” bigotry, as CNN’s Van Jones fumed on election night, leading many to sever relations with friends and family. For partisans inhabiting thought silos influenced by social media’s curated tribalism, the election was rigged, if not by hacked voting machines in Rust Belt states or by hacked journalism’s “fake news,” then by Russian email hackers who exposed Democrat dirt, including revelations about how Democrat primaries were rigged against Bernie Sanders.
