Trump supporters gather in Highlands Ranch

The informal event was announced through word-of-mouth exchanges and email

A gathering of supporters for President Donald Trump came together in Highlands Ranch on Sept. 12 to demonstrate their endorsement of the Republican candidate.

Some showed their support by standing along the C-470 bypass and at the corner of Quebec Street and County Line Road with signs and flags, and others drove by with Trump campaign flags flying out of their windows or honking, according to videos taken at the event.

The rally was not formally organized by the county’s Republican Party and was announced only through word-of-mouth exchanges and email, said Andy Jones, a Highlands Ranch resident who also serves as a director for the community's metro district.

A few hundred people attended, he said.

The event was scheduled to take place from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m., said Jones, who helped spread the word about the gathering. A map distributed to attendees showed a parade route looping from Yosemite Street and Park Meadows Drive to Quebec Street and County Line Road.

“It was a patriot rally,” Jones said. “It was for people in the area to come unabashedly out and say we support our president, our country … citizens are coming out to say I’m not afraid, I’m a Trump supporter.”

The event organizer declined to be interviewed and said he “preferred for the safety of his family to remain anonymous,” according to Jones.
