Dirk Haire, the Chair of Maryland's GOP, joins us to talk about the upcoming election. And we meet Jamie Sycamore, who is running as an Independent for the D.C. Council.
President-elect Donald Trump and the Republican-controlled Congress have sent ripples of uncertainty through the civil service with calls to “drain the swamp” and shake up Washington bureaucracy.
