We’ve been keeping an eye on famous and elected Coloradans’ reactions to the inauguration of President Donald Trump. Here’s what we’ve seen, and feel free to send your finds.
John Elway: He was in attendance. Decent seat, too.
Sen. Cory Gardner: He was there, center and bottom of the frame.
“After a divisive political election, our country came together today to celebrate the inauguration of a new President and witness a proud American tradition, the peaceful transfer of power. I echo President Trump’s call for unity in his inaugural address and truly believe that regardless of individual political ideology, we all have something in common: a shared love for our nation and the desire to pass on a better America with more opportunities to the next generation. I continue to believe that our country’s best days are ahead, and I look forward to working with the incoming Administration to grow our economy and encourage job creation across the four corners of Colorado and throughout our great nation.”
Rep. Mike Coffman: He was in Colorado, at least as of 7:20 a.m. He tweeted: “The peaceful transfer of power is something we should all celebrate.”
Councilman Paul Lopez: He was marching the streets of Denver.
Councilwoman Robin Kniech:
Rep. Doug Lamborn: “As the @POTUS said, it is time to make America strong, wealthy, proud, safe, and great again!”
Jeff Hays, El Paso County GOP chair, running for state chair: “We are so blessed that the most successful, most powerful country in the world can have this peaceful transfer of authority.”
Rep. Jared Polis: Polis was among the Colorado Democrats who told Denverite they’d be attending, along with representatives Ed Perlmutter and Diana DeGette, who also will be marching on Saturday.
