Maryland Senator Ben Cardin joins us to talk about the youth movement against gun violence, Russian sanctions, and more. D.C. Councilmember Mary Cheh shares her thoughts on relief for high water bills and news that D.C. Public Schools is taking over an all girls charter school.
Horse races are known for their pageantry, and this weekend’s Belmont Stakes will be no different. Over-the-top hats, high-stakes gambling and graceful thoroughbreds come together to create a spectacle that will be broadcast on televisions across the country.
