Rallies across Colorado make last appeal for Sen. Gardner to Dump DeVos

“Tell Sen. Gardner Dump DeVos” was the name of the rally and a few hundred parents and educators turned out, Feb. 4, to demonstrate their displeasure with President Trump’s nominee for education secretary, Betsy DeVos. The group gathered on the street below the Denver office of Sen. Cory Gardner, who likely has the power to derail the nomination of the billionaire lobbyist and longtime Republican Party donor.
