DENVER — Good morning and Happy Friday ... and National Lasagna Day. Safe travels to those of you who are headed back to Colorado from the Democratic National Convention. But my advice, stay away from lasagna before hitting the friendly skies or they may become far less friendly. Today, another passenger soaring the friendly skies — with much more leg room — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, will host a town hall meeting in Colorado Springs at 2 p.m. and a rally in Denver at 7 p.m., events we will have Statesman reporters on hand to cover for you.
All this following Hillary Clinton's historic acceptance of the Democratic nomination for president last night in Philadelphia during the DNC's fourth and final day, an event studded with speeches from two Colorado politicos, one of them delivering a "low energy" but nonetheless inspiring speech about how he was laid off from a job 30 years ago almost to the day.
