Politics

As we head into summer, things are starting to heat up, and we'’re not just talking about the weather. The number of Republicans vying for their party’'s presidential nomination is growing each month, while many Democrats are hoping there are other candidates willing to step-up and challenge Hillary Clinton.

  Personal emails from Hillary, a public letter from Senate Republicans, speeches by possible candidates who may or may not be running for president, and Instagram photos posted by a House member, politicians are doing a lot of communicating lately. But what they are trying to say is often a mystery. 

 

  With the mid-term elections behind us, national political attention is now turned to the presidential election in 2016. But what takes place on the state and local level over the next year arguably has more of an affect on the day to day lives of people and businesses.

The Political Junkie Road Show is happening tonight at the Cincinnati Masonic Center downtown, featuring the men who made Wednesday afternoons appointment listening: The Political Junkie Ken Rudin, and former host of Talk of the Nation, Neal Conan. They are in town for the live show, but will join us today -  from Studio A at CET with a live audience - along with our Howard Wilkinson, to talk politics, midterm elections, ask a trivia question, and take your calls and questions.

Tickets for The Political Junkie Road Show tonight at 7:30pm can be purchased at the door. The Cincinnati Masonic Center is located at 317 E. Fifth Street, next to the Taft Theatre.
