Original item, 12:03 p.m. May 8: Can Colorado House leaders be shamed into giving a chance to the civil unions bill? That's the hope of supporters, who gathered in force on the State Capitol's West steps amid chants of "Let them vote!" The bill escaped a committee thanks to backing from Republican Representative B.J. Nikkel, but GOP gatekeepers can still prevent it from being considered before session's end. We should know its fate by day's end. In the meantime, here are photos from the rally.
