Congress Heads Back To Washington

Hurricane Dorian threatens the Florida coastline. We discuss President Trump's reaction to the disaster on River to River.

House Democrats passed gun background legislation in February and are expected to vote on more bills next week when members of Congress return to Washington after a six-week recess.

On this "Politics Day" edition of River to River, host Ben Kieffer talks with political analysts Cary Covington and Jeff Taylor about President Trump's response to Hurricane Dorian and changes to the democratic caucus as well as other top political headlines of the week. 

Also, we continue our “Home State View” series with an interview with senior writer for POLITICO's California Playbook Carla Marinucci who covered presidential candidate Tom Steyer.

Guests Include: 

  • Cary Covington, associate professor of political science at the University of Iowa.  

  • Jeff Taylor, professor of political science at Dordt University. 

  • Carla Marinucci, Senior Writer for POLITICO's California Playbook.
