Sanders Speaks Up For Guns, Trump Gets Hispanic Support
The news of the week in Washington may be House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s dropped speakership bid, but he is not the only one turning heads.
Ben Carson, the neurosurgeon seeking the Republican nomination for president, made some highly-publicized comments when it came to gun control, Nazi Germany and the debt ceiling. Donald Trump, who had claimed for months that “the Hispanics love me,” got some proof at a Thursday night campaign rally in Las Vegas.
On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton tried to put some distance between herself and President Obama’s Trans-Pacific Partnership. And Bernie Sanders tried to highlight his D-minus rating from the National Rifle Association.
Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson and Robin Young speak with Jeanne Cummings of The Wall Street Journal and Jesse Holland of the Associated Press for a closer look at the week’s news in the race for 2016.
