The Wheelhouse: Political Games and Campaigns

Mar 2, 2016

The future of some presidential campaigns may be decided on Super Tuesday, further slimming the field of candidates by the time Connecticut votes next month. If you can't wait to vote, maybe you can pass the time by playing an electoral board game created by a Connecticut resident. Our weekly news roundtable The Wheelhouse discusses the results from the Democratic and Republican parties and previews what's to come. 

Also, Sen. Richard Blumenthal's lone declared Republican challenger is struggling to raise money and keep his staff. The candidate, former Olympian August Wolf is reportedly on his third leadership team in nine months.

Also, Gov. Dannel Malloy is in Puerto Rico for the Democratic Governors Association's winter meetings while his colleagues in the legislature continue to grapple with worsening budget news. How will the budget problems be fixed, or at least mitigated during this session?

GUESTS:

  • Kevin Rennie - Attorney and columnist for the Hartford Courant
  • Renny Fulco - Associate professor and director of Public Policy and Law Program at Trinity College
  • Paul Bass - Editor of the New Haven Independent
