KUSA’s Kyle Clark Gets Feisty as Debate Moderator

Last night, political reporter Brandon Rittiman and anchor Kyle Clark of Denver NBC affiliate KUSA moderated a heated debate between Sen. Mark Udall (D) and Rep. Cory Gardner (R). But the candidates weren’t the only two people confronting one another.

Clark got into his own argument with Gardner about the federal Life at Conception Act, which Clark says Gardner denies being a personhood bill to end abortion. Check out a clip of the testy exchange above.

Just hours before news broke of Obama’s gay marriage pronouncement, Romney affirmed his opposition to same-sex unions in interviews with reporters from a handful of Denver stations.

On Tuesday night, Republicans in the Colorado state house of representatives blocked a bill that would have allowed same-sex civil unions, so on Wednesday reporters from KDVR, KUSA, and KCNC asked Romney to discuss his stance on the issue. Read more
