We meet Dionne Reeder, a business owner running for D.C. Council, and the new chair of Virginia's Republican Party, Jack Wilson.
As white supremacists head toward Washington this weekend, officials in both D.C. and Virginia are preparing for potential violence.
We speak to Metropolitan Police Chief Peter Newsham about how the District is attempting to keep everyone safe. Councilmember Charles Allen joins us to talk about the weekend’s protests, public safety, Metro issues, and more. And Neal Simon, a Maryland businessman, tells us about why he is running for U.S. Senate as a moderate independent. All of that, plus Washington Post reporter Erin Cox on how she made national headlines when a candidate for governor responded to one of her questions with a choice four letter word…
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.
