Trump Won’t Accept The Result Of The Election. Will Connecticut Republicans?

In tonight’s presidential debate, Donald Trump refused to say he would accept the result of the presidential election.

“This is absolutely unacceptable. This democracy is built on the peaceful transfer of power, but, for the first time in modern history, a presidential candidate has refused to accept the will of the voters. Will Connecticut Republicans – who have defended Donald Trump throughout his despicable campaign – continue to stand by their nominee as he walks all over theConstitution? This should be disqualifying, and Trump’s Connecticut GOP supporters and the candidates running on his ticket this fall need to be held accountable for these statements.” – Connecticut Democratic Party Executive Director Michael Mandell
