Dear readers,

Donald Trump says the election is rigged. How else could Mike Littwin, Colorado’s favorite political columnist, claim to already know all the winners and all the losers – especially the losers – days ahead of Election Day?

Come see for yourself this Sunday, Nov. 6th for a pre-election bagel brunch with Littwin. Or, as we like to call it, the full schmear.

Littwin covered his first presidential campaign in 1984 (note the year; you think it’s a coincidence?) when he went to New Hampshire for The Los Angeles Times to see Gary Hart pull off one of the great electoral upsets in modern history. Over the last 32 years, Littwin thought he’d seen everything possible to see along the campaign trail. He saw Hillary Clinton’s near-tear episode in New Hampshire. He saw Howard Dean’s full scream in Iowa. He saw Sarah Palin put lipstick on a pig in Minneapolis. He saw Tom Tancredo walk into a Mexican all-you-can-eat buffet in Des Moines.

But he’s never seen anything like Donald Trump. That’s because no one has ever seen anything remotely like Donald Trump. If Trump wins on Nov. 8, Littwin urges you to mark it on your calendar as the first day of the Apocalypse. And if loses on Nov. 8, you can mark down Nov. 9 as the first day of the revolution. Either way, it’s going to be big. Or “bigly.” And there’s much to discuss.

So join us for a nosh with Littwin from 11 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Sunday at our office, 700 Kalamath, Denver 80204. Admission is a tax-deductible contribution of at least $50 in support of The Colorado Independent’s non-profit newsroom. Space is limited, so please email editor Susan Greene at susan@coloradoindependent.com to reserve a spot.

If you’re otherwise occupied on Sunday morning, join us the evening after the election, Wednesday Nov. 9th from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m., for a post-mortem at The Denver Press Club, 1330 Glenarm Pl, Denver 80204. Littwin will help you wrap your head around what happened at the polls. Don’t miss this chance to get his take on an election cycle for the history books and what’s in store for Colorado and the nation once a new administration takes over in January. No reservation is necessary, but a contribution to our non-profit newsroom would be much appreciated.

We hope to see you either this Sunday or next Wednesday. In the meantime, please check out Littwin’s columns, Pulitzer-winner Mike Keefe’s political cartoons, and all our pre-election news coverage at www.coloradoindependent.com.
