Dozens rally for Trump in Longmont - Event to 'energize the base' encounters little opposition

A pro-Trump rally went on without incident Saturday afternoon in Longmont. Demonstrators gathered under clear blue skies, hoisting signs and waving at passersby in the hopes of rallying support for the president and his allies ahead of the November mid-term elections.

At its peak, roughly 45 people were spread across all four corners of the Nelson/Hover intersection, including a half-dozen employees of Noble Energy, demonstrating their opposition to Proposition 112, the statewide ballot measure that would impose a 2,500-foot setback on oil and gas wells.

The crowd was stumping for a handful of Republicans in various Colorado races, including Gary Cooper for Boulder County Commissioner; Peter Yu for U.S. House of Representatives, District 2; and Walker Stapleton for governor. Signs for the candidates were interspersed among numerous American and "Don't Tread on Me" flags, Trump banners, as well as one life-size cutout of the man himself.

Colorado Women for Trump and MAGA Trump -Colorado organized the event, along with a simultaneous one in Colorado Springs. A similar event in Loveland in July drew about 350 Demonstrators.
