Jack Evans (l) and Tony Campbell (r)

It’s been a busy week in the D.C. Council. As councilmembers prepare for a summer recess, a slew of bills were introduced and debated over the past few days. We learn about a bill to overturn Initiative 77 and proposal to ban plastic straws, both sponsored by Councilmember Jack Evans.

Then, we meet Tony Campbell, a political science professor and Republican for Maryland’s U.S. Senate seat.

All of that plus the region’s biggest political news.

Sorting political fact from fiction, and having fun while we’re at it. Join us for our weekly review of the politics, policies, and personalities of the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia.
