GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. -- Drivers in Grand Junction will soon see two billboards comparing the Republican Party to the former Soviet Union after some complaints were raised about a single one.

The controversial red billboard that replaced the “O” in GOP with a Soviet-era hammer and sickle has been moved from its location on a digital billboard along U.S. Highway 6 to a traditional billboard on Colorado State Highway 340.

“The local billboard company has moved us to a regular, vinyl billboard,” said Anne Landman, a liberal blogger and author who paid to for the billboard. “The digital board rotated ads every eight seconds, and some of those advertisers complained.”

The Grand Junction resident expects to have the second vinyl sign — on the flip side of the one on Colorado 240 — printed and pasted before weekend visitors start driving to the Colorado National Monument.
