The Politics Hour
A front-runner in Maryland's 2014 campaign for governor, the current attorney general, takes heat for comments about the role of race in the contest. A veteran campaign operative in the District pleads guilty in the investigation into the controversial 2010 race for mayor. And Virginia's gubernatorial candidates carpet the airwaves with negative ads about each other. Join us for our weekly review of the politics, policies and personalities of the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia.
Maryland Attorney General Douglas Gansler said his opponent, Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, has been relying on his race to get elected as governor. Gansler also said the person who recorded his controversial comments at a volunteer campaign event committed “felony wiretapping.” On The Politics Hour, Gansler expands on the issue of race and on wiretapping.
