New York’s Presidential primary is Tuesday, but the initial excitement over the vote vanished when Rick Santorum dropped out earlier this month. State GOP leaders say they are looking ahead to the general election instead.
It's an entirely political discussion on this week's Campbell Conversations, as Congresswoman Ann Marie Buerkle and political consultant Scott Armstrong consider the Republican presidential field in light of the Iowa Caucus results. Among the questions they consider are: What surprised them? Is the party dangerously fractured as it heads toward the general election? What could unite it? Are the norms of the Republican Party changing in important ways? Is Romney still the nominee apparent? And what are the calculations about a vice presidential candidate at this point?
In this week’s segment, the Campbell Conversations returns to the upcoming November elections, with a discussion among six of the nine candidates for State Supreme Court Justice in the six-county fifth judicial district—a district that encompasses much of WRVO’s listening area. This program is presented on-air in two parts. Part one on Friday, and the second Saturday. The audio available here is the entire hour long discussion.
