Competing campaign signs appear at neighboring homes along G Road in Grand Junction, with the Clinton sign being the apparent target of a politically motivated vandal. Representatives of both major parties say the signs have been attracting negative attention from people who disagree with the message. “It’s been bad out there with the vandalism,” said Richard Hathorne, who coordinates with the Republican campaigns, including Trump and Senate candidate Darryl Glenn, for signs.

If the Grand Valley seems like the eye of the political storm, what with the lack of signs plastering highways, byways and neighborhood streets, don’t be fooled, say partisans on both sides of the political divide.
