On the anniversary of President Donald Trump's inauguration and just hours after the federal government went into a partial shutdown, tens of thousands of protesters — most waving signs and many clad in signature pink hats — flooded Denver's Civic Center Park and streets around the state Capitol Saturday morning for the city's second Women's March, as organizers vowed to channel a year's worth of outrage into electoral power.

CHEYENNE – Cheyenne and Laramie County were among the biggest winners in Wyoming from tourism activity associated with the Great American Eclipse in August. And while the overall number of out-of-state visitors fell short of higher-end estimates, the Wyoming Office of Tourism is touting the eclipse’s path of totality through the state as the largest single tourism event in the state’s history.

Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday told a ballroom full of Republicans in Greenwood Village that a unified GOP will fulfill a key campaign pledge of President Donald Trump by enacting tax reform legislation. “I’m going to make a prediction tonight: We’re going to pass the largest tax cut in American history, and we’re going to pass it this year,” Pence told about 300 donors at a fundraiser for the Colorado Republican Party at the Denver Marriott Tech Center.

Protests, email and letter writing campaigns targeted at members of Congress and packed town hall meetings have seemingly become the norm since Donald Trump assumed the presidency. Opposition is nothing new to anyone who's sat in the Oval Office — or in any elected office for that matter — and tried to carry out new policies and change what seems to be an unchangeable bureaucracy. Still, the level of that opposition seems more vocal, more amped up than at any time in perhaps decades. Millions marched on Washington, D.C, the day after Trump took the oath of office as the 45th president. Thousands marched in opposition to abortion and hundreds of people have attended town hall meetings in Colorado and other states, voicing opposition to issues such as changing or repealing the Affordable Care Act, Trump's executive orders related to immigration from certain Muslim-dominated countries and building a wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
