Listen 00:48:44

Guests: Robert Costa and Sam Stein

The field of Republican presidential candidates swelled this week, with three more contenders announcing their plans to make a bid for the White House in 2016. Carly Fiorina, Ben Carson, and Mike Huckabee triumphantly declared that they’re entering the fray, which has become increasingly crowded over the past few weeks. Over a dozen conservatives have expressed interest in running and cash is flowing into a variety of super PACs. In this hour of Radio Times, we size up the Republican contenders thus far and unpack their stances on policy issues with ROBERT COSTA of The Washington Post and SAM STEIN of The Huffington Post. We’ll also discuss the latest news from the Clinton and Sanders campaigns.
