The Politics Hour

The Politics Hour

We connect with a Republican angling to be Virginia's next lieutenant governor and three Democrats competing for an at-large seat on the D.C. Council.

Federal officials investigate whether D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray's 2010 campaign concealed donations. A Maryland judge blocks both a Maryland lawmaker and her nominated replacement from taking a seat in Annapolis. And a prominent Virginia Democrat decides not to throw up any obstacles in front of a fellow party member seeking a gubernatorial nomination. Join us for our weekly review of the politics, policies and personalities of the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia.
