Lima Charlie podcasts are LIVE with “The Horse Race” Ep. 03: The Week in Politics. Listen in.
Brought to you by Political Correspondents and US Army and USCG veterans Michael Connolly & Brendan McKinnon. This week (Ep. 03), Mike and Brendan bring on a new LC political team member: Political Correspondent USAF veteran Dan Webb. The perfect trifecta.
This week’s episode (“The Tightening Edition”), covers the big story about how last week saw a tightening in the polls between Hillary Clinton and Donald J. Trump. Why have polls tightened so much? What does that mean to Americans?
The Three Amigos also discuss The Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA), Commander-in-Chief Forum that was held on September 7th, drawing a television audience of nearly 15 million. As reported by Lima Charlie News, the forum, held on the deck of the USS Intrepid, forced both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump to discuss national security and military issues before a crowd of veterans, led by IAVA. Did the forum address all the issues? Was the forum fair and balanced? Has Matt Lauer survived the experience? Tune in and read LC’s story:
The team’s final topic asks “Will Hillary Clinton survive overheating and a ‘basket of deplorables'”?
All that, Little Marco, and the shameless promotion of a spotlight article on Brendan McKinnon:
