    Hour 1

    We’ll survey the national scene on this week’s Radio Times political news roundup, with a trio of sharp political observers. Guest host TRACEY MATISAK will talk politics with DICK POLMAN, columnist and blogger for the Philadelphia Inquirer; SCOTT HUFFMON, political science professor from Winthrop University in South Carolina; and DAVID MARK, senior editor at Politico. Among the topics on the agenda will be the U.S. Justice Department’s suit against Arizona’s immigration law; interesting campaigns including South Carolina’s governor and Senate races and Senate races in Nevada and Arizona; Sarah Palin and Michael Steele’s roles in the Republican Party; the war in Afghanistan now that General Petraeus has replaced Gen. McChrystal; what we learned from Elena Kagan’s Supreme Court nomination hearings; last thoughts on the passing of West Virginia Senator Robert C. Byrd; and more.
