State of the State RI

Guests: Richard August, Host and co-producer-State of the State
Mike Stenhouse, Host and co-producer-State of the State
Host: John Carlevale
Is the RI Democratic Party at odds with itself? The escalating rift between the progressive wing and the non-progressive/more moderate wing of the party seems to indicate so. This division seems to be showing itself in many local and statewide primary races. August characterizes this as a battle for the soul of the Democratic Party. Stenhouse suggests that these philosophical differences are having a server and paralyzing impact on the Democrats and their public policy initiatives. These generalities show in more specific discussions of legislation and laws enacted.
