DENVER — The Colorado Citizens for Culture now has the money to hang a portrait of President Trump at the Colorado State Capitol.
A GoFundMe account, started by State Senate President Kevin Grantham (R-Cañon City), raised more than $9,600 for the cause as of Wednesday night.
Jay Seaton, who heads the Colorado Citizens for Culture, said earlier in the day that $1,000 was donated separately.
The Colorado Citizens for Culture has arranged for the last few presidential portraits to be made and hung. As of last week, $0 of the $10,000 they needed had been raised.
Seaton said it usually takes about four months to collect the money.
The story picked up steam when a prankster put Russian President Vladimir Putin's portrait in the space meant for President Trump. A tour guide removed it shortly after.
No word yet on when the painting will start.
