    An undocumented immigrant is taking refuge at a church in Denver while she fights to remain in the country. Jeanette Vizguerra, a mother of four, was scheduled to check in with Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents Wednesday morning. She wanted to extend the stay on her deportation order, which expired last week, while she applies for a special visa. It was denied. She now faces separation from her American-born children, the youngest of whom is just 6. Vizguerra’s attorney appeared in court for her, saying she probably would have been taken into custody if she appeared. She is now taking...

In the same breath, the governor admitted Trump wasn’t making it easy. “The apparent disregard for the truth and facts … the really accelerated pace by which decisions are being made...

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper served as a representative of the Democratic Party's future here, just as outgoing Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry represented the past.

    First, we had a fistful of electors file 527 papers in Colorado in order to raise money for legal fees, namely to bankroll lawsuits against state election laws that bind the electoral college vote to the statewide winner. A federal judge nominated by former President Bill Clinton rejected the lawsuit filed by two Colorado electors, saying that the whole exercise sounded like a political stunt—and that releasing these public officials would disrupt a peaceful transition of power. These electors now have to vote for the statewide winner. This group of wannabe rogue electors called themselves Hamilton Electors. Yesterday another...

    DENVER -- A state court judge ruled Tuesday that all Colorado electors to the Electoral College must vote for Hillary Clinton or vacate their positions. Initially, judge Elizabeth Starrs said if the electors take the oath and don't vote for Clinton, they would face criminal penalties. But she later said the electors would be replaced if they don't vote for Clinton and it would then be up to prosecutors to decided whether they would face charges. The decision ensures Clinton will receive all of Colorado's nine electoral votes. Two Democratic members of Colorado's Electoral College fought to have a state...

They were already facing the prospect of an election law violation that carries the potential for a small fine and a year of jail time. Williams told POLITICO in a...

    Republicans took the lead in early voting in Colorado at the end of the day Friday and held the advantage through the weekend despite robust Democratic get-out-the-vote efforts. The latest early voting numbers released Monday morning show registered Republicans cast 652,380 ballots compared to 645,020 registered Democrats — a 7,360 vote advantage. The breakdown looks like this: 35.2 percent Republican, 34.8 percent Democrat and 28.5 percent unaffiliated. It’s worth noting that not all Republicans are voting for GOP nominee Donald Trump — just like not all Democrats are supporting party nominee Hillary Clinton. But the early voting is a potential...

    New surveys show him making major swing-state gains, on cusp of paving electoral college path Two shocking polls dropped on Wednesday show Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump may be finally on a path to an Electoral College victory. Trump has been struggling to put together the final piece of the electoral puzzle in his presidential bid.

About 14% responded "none/other/don't know or it depends," which could be depressing the numbers behind each candidate.

    Hillary Clinton's campaign is back on the air with TV advertising in Virginia and Colorado, and has begun running ads in New Mexico and Michigan -- all states that have seemed safely out of play for most of the election cycle. "The Trump campaign claims their path to White House is through states like these but we're going to make sure those doors remain shut," said campaign spokesperson Jesse Ferguson. "Fueled by record breaking fundraising in the last 72 two hours, we are supercharging our GOTV program with these ads to make sure voters know the urgency and the stakes...
