Candid With The Carnahans: End Of A Political Dynasty?
For the first time in a long time, no member of the Carnahan family is holding public office in Missouri.
Secretary of State Robin Carnahan left office earlier this week after deciding not to seek re-election last November. Her brother, Congressman Russ Carnahan (MO – 3), served four terms in the U.S. House of Representatives. After re-districting, he challenged Congressman Lacy Clay in the Democratic primary and was unsuccessful.
Host Don Marsh talked with Robin and Russ Carnahan in a wide ranging discussion which addressed their time as children growing up in a political family, time in office, the state of politics, and they talked about some of the major issues of the day.
