DENVER (AP) — About 200 people rallied outside the office of Sen. Cory Gardner in downtown Denver Friday urging him to vote against Brett Kavanaugh. Some held signs for passing light rail trains and cars to see, with some drivers honking their support.

The crowd chanted slogans like “Hell, no, Kavanaugh” and “No rejection, no relection.”

Some also lined up to talk to Gardner’s staff and were allowed inside in groups of five.

Retired teacher Barbara Gal of Lakewood said she heard from some of her former students during the past week about their sexual assaults for the first time and wanted to come to represent them.

Sheryl Noven of Highlands Ranch says someone can’t be elevated to the Supreme Court if there are any doubts about them.
