After 32 years, one chapter comes to a close – 102.3 KRMG

32 years ago this week I walked over to the building which houses C-SPAN just a few blocks from the U.S. Capitol to interview for this job. It worked out better than anyone could have imagined. I covered eight campaigns for President, logging thousands of miles on the road. I checked in on House and Senate races around the nation. I covered hurricanes. The Nine Eleven attacks. Supreme Court… → Read More

On the same day that the Electoral College confirmed the White House victory of Joe Biden, retiring Rep.

Senate ignores veto threat, approves major defense bill – 102.3 KRMG

Joining the House in voting for a yearly defense policy bill by a broad bipartisan margin, the Senate dared President Donald Trump on Friday to veto the plan, which the President opposes in part because it allows the Pentagon to change the names of military bases named after Confederate soldiers. The vote was 84 to 13, well more than the two-thirds of the Senate needed to override a veto. “I am… → Read More

Swing states tell Supreme Court to toss out Texas election challenge – 102.3 KRMG

Four states targeted by a GOP lawsuit backed by President Donald Trump fired back at the state of Texas on Thursday, telling the Supreme Court in a series of legal briefs that Texas has no business telling another state how to conduct its elections. “The Court should not abide this seditious abuse of the judicial process, and should send a clear and unmistakable signal that such abuse must never… → Read More

Breaking GOP silence, Georgia Republicans give Trump bad news – 102.3 KRMG

Five weeks after the 2020 elections, most elected Republicans around the nation remain silent in public about the re-election defeat of President Donald Trump, except for in the state of Georgia, where top GOP leaders have spoken out more forcefully in recent days, making it clear that the results show Joe Biden was indeed the winner of the Peach State. “It has been unbelievable to see the… → Read More
