St. Louis Public Radio’s Chris McDaniel joins the St. Louis Beacon’s Jo Mannies and Jason Rosenbaum to talk about the week’s politics.
On this week's show: We cover it all in the St. Louis mayoral race (even the diet and exercise of the candidates), we also touch on so-called "Right-to-Work" legislation that's being discussed in the Missouri House, and close it out with an update on Missouri's 8th Congressional district.
From the start, Senator Roy Blunt (R-Mo) has been critical of the Obama administration’s response to the attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya last September that resulted in the death of an ambassador and three other Americans. And on Thursday, Blunt had the opportunity to question departing Defense Secretary Leon Panetta about the attack.
Panetta testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee in what will likely be his final appearance before Congress.
