Definitely not a slow news week, so there's a lot to get to on today's edition of The Closer. As usual, we'll get started at 1:00 pm Central Time and go right until 3:00.
Right at the start of the show, I'll be joined in studio by Lisa Belak, who is the President of the Board of Governors of the MN Excellence in Public Service (MEPS) series. This training series is geared towards conservative women in an effort for them to have more involvement in public service, whether it's running campaigns, becoming a candidate for political office, etc.
At 2:15, political wonk Matt Mackowiak will call in to the program to share his insights on easily the biggest news story of this past week, the Boston Marathon bombings. Matt will also discuss the US Senate vote of gun control and the President's reaction to the bill not passing.
In addition, I'll also discuss the latest on MN Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, whose Presidential campaign is in the midst of an F.E.C. investigation.
So please give us a call at (651) 289-4488 if you'd like to discuss
any of the topics we plan on addressing. You can also text
comments/questions to (651) 243-0390.
