Jerry Mayhew got us started this morning. We took a different approach to PPACA (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act) looking at what might change is Mitt Romney were elected and succeeded in overturning the legislation. Jerry had some interesting ideas about what might change and what might actually stay the same. He also had some advice for anyone looking for coverage today.
Democratic Candidate for the 61st Delegate District Jason Barrett was in studio. He answered some questions about the recent tone of his campaign and about some of the things he'd like to see changed in Charleston. You can find out more about Barrett in the interview or by sending him and e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Tina Combs and Tracey Eberling from the Martinsburg-Berkeley County Chamber of Commerce stopped by to recap the 5th Annual Community Showcase. More than 50 exhibitors were at the Mall Saturday and it sounds like a good crowd gathered as well. We also previewed Wednesdays 86th Annual Chamber Dinner. Get all the details in the interview and at the Chamber's Website.
And we wrapped up with Conrad Lucas, Chairman of the WV Republican Party. He joined us via the Frontier Communications Hotline to try and rally the troops to get out and vote. He thinks the republican party has a real shot at taking control of the legislature and some key state and national offices as well. He said voting fro any democrat is a win for President Barack Obama. We discuss that notion
in the itnerview.
