Pence greeted by "Make America Gay Again" sign in Colorado

ASPEN, Colo. -- Neighbors of the home where Vice President Mike Pence has been staying in Colorado this week have a message. They've placed a rainbow-colored banner reading "Make America Gay Again" on a stone pillar at the end of the driveways to both homes near the posh ski resort of Aspen. 

Pitkin County sheriff's deputy Michael Buglione tells the Aspen Times that Secret Service agents weren't bothered by the sign. 

Pence has described himself as a "Christian, a conservative and a Republican, in that order." He has opposed legislation prohibiting discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered people in the workplace. 

Pence and his family arrived in the Aspen area Tuesday and plan to leave Monday.
