Back in the Patriot bunker for the first time in three weeks, The Closer returns today to its normal 1-3 PM time slot. You know how much I enjoy having guests on the program, so one would think I'll be absolutely ecstatic on this day as a segment won't go by without someone joining the program.
Right off the bat at 1:00, MN for Marriage spokesperson Autumn Leva will be calling in to discuss a case being heard at the Hennepin County District Court. Apparently there is lawsuit which will attempt to legalize same-sex marriage before voters have an opportunity to vote on the issue this November.
At 1:15, GOP political strategist Matt Mackowiak will join me via phone to give a recap of both the Republican and Democrat National Conventions. We'll also discuss the US Senate race out of Texas where Matt was an integral part of Republican Ted Cruz securing his party's nomination.
To commemorate Patriot Day on Tuesday, SSG Lynette Hoke of the MN National Guard will be on at 1:45 to discuss her three tours of duty since 9/11/2001 as well as the Guard's role in those situations.
Finally from 2:15 until the show's conclusion, I will be the envy of all 20-something heterosexual males as I will be joined in studio by the lovely and talented Kieffer sisters, Katie, Amie and Maggie. As women and devout Catholics, I'll get their perspective on the alleged "War on Women" declared by the GOP as well as issues which young people should most concern themselves (FYI, this year will mark the first opportunity for 20-year old Maggie to cast a vote for President!).
