STRIKE UP THE BAND ... It is, after all, March Fourth. The celebration started a few days early in Colorado, when John Philip Sousa IV, the grandson of the composer and marching band icon, was on hand to endorse a pair of longshot Republican candidates — Greg Lopez, the former Parker mayor running for governor, and Casper Stockham, who lost a bid to unseat Democrat Diana DeGette in the 1st Congressional District last time around and is giving it another go this cycle.

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.
