Today, eight newspapers across Colorado feature last night’s presidential debate coverage on their front pages. All of them lead with the angle that Donald Trump would not commit to accepting the election results if Hillary Clinton Wins, saying, “I’ll keep you in suspense.”
Those papers include The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel, The Greeley Tribune, The Loveland Reporter-Herald, The Durango Herald, The Longmont Times-Call, The Boulder Daily Camera, The Denver Post and The Colorado Springs Gazette.
