State of the Union Highlights

It was a big morning of breaking news today on State of the Union. After deadly tornadoes swept through the Midwest overnight, Kansas Governor Sam Brownback gave Candy an update on the damage done in his state.

Meanwhile, in Afghanistan the Taliban launched a coordinated series of attacks in Kabul and across the country. First on CNN, ISAF Spokesman Jimmie Cummings praised the response of Afghan National Security Forces to the attacks.

Also first on CNN, Ambassador to Afghanistan Ryan Crocker spoke to Candy while his embassy in Kabul was on lockdown. He said that the attacks showed that the US still needed a military presence in Afghanistan.

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus downplayed the potential impact of the so-called Buffett Rule and questioned President Obama’s priorities in promoting it.
