State of the Union Highlights

On today’s show, Candy spoke with  Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin of Illinois and Republican Senator Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire about foreign policy and GOP presumptive presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s overseas trip. In the separate interviews, the senators also sparred over the impending 'fiscal cliff’ and when to deal with the issue in Congress. We also discussed the recent rash of negative campaign ads and their effectiveness with Ken Goldstein, Ron Brownstein and Michael Scherer.
