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.

THEY GRABBED A CLIPBOARD ... It looks like a lot of Coloradans took the advice of a certain soon-to-be-former president. In his farewell address, delivered just over a week before leaving office, President Barack Obama said an oft-quoted line — "If you're disappointed by your elected officials, grab a clipboard, get some signatures, and run for office yourself" — that might have launched a thousand candidacies, including quite a few here in Colorado.

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.

UPDATE: According to officials with the Colorado secretary of state's office, the candidates who had difficulty filing campaign finance reports earlier this month, including those whose "major contributor" donations initially showed up twice in posted reports, weren't to blame for the mishaps. It turns out, a procedure on the secretary of state's side to convert spreadsheets filed by campaigns' agents wasn't handling the data properly — a glitch officials say they didn't fully grasp was botching the reports until days after the filing deadline. While some campaigns — and veteran compliance agent Marge Klein — took responsibility for what they thought were their own errors, below, the secretary of state's office says they were doing everything properly.

A Democrat challenging U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman on Wednesday called on the Aurora Republican to unload $10,000 in campaign contributions from a fellow GOP lawmaker under fire for settling a former aide's sexual harassment complaint with taxpayer money — but a Coffman spokesman said he'd already donated the funds earlier in the day to a local nonprofit that works to empower young women.
