Craig in National Spotlight

Moffat County residents proved long ago that they have no intention of rolling over and taking hits without a fight. With their fate tied to the Presidential election, the citizens of Craig stole a slice of the national spotlight last week being highlighted in national media for their anti-Hillary stance. Featured in USA Today on November 5th, Craig citizens were on display for their overwhelming support of Trump as they strive to preserve their community built on coal. Last spring, Hillary Clinton was quoted as saying she intended to “put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.” The USA Today feature includes plenty of images showing signs of support for Trump as well as the county motto of Coal: It Keeps Our Lights On. Last week, Colorado polls showed Clinton and Trump neck and neck with Clinton holding a slight lead.
