Kojo speaks with Arlington Board Chair Katie Cristol about the Amazon HQ2 effect and D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine about his probe into the local Catholic Church and his office's legal challenges against the Trump administration.
One year after Donald Trump was elected president, Virginia Democrats held onto the state’s governor’s seat with Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam besting Republican Ed Gillespie. The win was a landmark victory for Democrats in a statewide referendum against President Trump. The party also succeeded in the lieutenant governor, attorney general races, and managed to overturn several long-held GOP delegate seats. Kojo analyzes key moments out of this year’s race and takeaways from local contests that caught the attention of the entire country.
