Bryan Clark was in to take us behind the headlines with the Spirit of Jefferson. Find out what potential impact allowing a new casino in Maryland could have on Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races. The latest Spirit hit news stands today and you can also check it out online.
Bryan stuck around to talk about the second debate between President Barack Obama and his
Republican challenger, former Gov. Mitt Romney. The two spared in a town hall style debate lastnight. Bryan and I went over some of the contentious issues and did some fact checking. It may shock you to learn that both had a few exaggerations! Check out some of those with FactCheck.org, a self proclaimed non-partisan group that mostly has rebuttals to what it considers inaccurate, misleading, or false claims by politicians.
And we heard from Paul Espinosa, the republican candidate for the 66th Delegate District. Paul shared some of his own experiences and explained why he would like to serve in the house. He also spoke about his values and where he sees the potential to save some money at the state level. You can learn more about his platform on his campaign website and by listening to the link below.
