Khizr Khan, the Gold Star father who came under attack from Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign after offering to lend the Republican a copy of the Constitution, will appear at a rally on Tuesday for Jason Crow, a Democrat challenging U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman in Colorado's 6th Congressional District, Crow's campaign said Friday.

Saira Rao says she decided to stop practicing law at a New York firm and start a publishing company devoted to children’s fiction featuring diverse characters when she was watching cartoons with her daughter Lila one day about six years ago. “I saw the utter lack of diversity, and that’s when I switched gears to do something about it. I’m very familiar with institutional naysayers. When you’re a woman of color, that’s every day,” she says.

Democratic challenger Jason Crow on Thursday called on U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman to return campaign donations the Aurora Republican has received from the National Rifle Association and urged the incumbent to "act now to pass commonsense gun safety reform" the day after a mass shooting at a Florida high school left 17 dead and 14 wounded — but the Coffman campaign dismissed Crow's demands as political posturing.
