The Wheelhouse: DC Weighs in on CT

Aug 27, 2014

Access Health CT CEO Kevin Counihan is leaving Connecticut to join John Dankosky in Washington, DC. Actually, Counihan will be the CEO of HealthCare.gov and Dankosky will be back tomorrow.

This hour, Dankosky hosts our weekly news roundtable The Wheelhouse from NPR's world headquarters in Washington, DC. The rest of our news roundtable will catch him (and you) up on the week's news from the Constitution State, including Counihan's departure, shake-ups in the governor's race, and a preview of tonight's debate between Dan Malloy and Tom Foley.
