This week, Mike Broihier, candidate for U.S. Senate in 2020, joined Robert and Jazmin.  Lt. Col. Broihier spoke openly about why he was running, how he is operating his campaign, and where he sees a path to victory.  Lt. Col. Broihier also talked about issues, including his thoughts on the use of military power.  The group also talked about the importance of removing Mitch McConnell from the Senate.

There were plenty of news stories to cover as well!  Robert talked through another potential U.S. Senate candidate (Matt Jones)'s decision to form an exploratory committee, Jazmin worked through two different criminal justice stories: the CAGED series in the Herald-Leader about jails in Kentucky and the Jefferson County Attorney's decision to stop prosecuting some marijuana cases, Robert went through news that broke during the trial of Jerry Lundergan and Dale Emmons, and Jazmin explained SCOKY's ruling which stopped Andy Beshear's office from hiring outside council.
