In this hour, Marty continues her series of one-on-one interviews with candidates for statewide office when she speaks with Republican candidate for Attorney General of Pennsylvania, JOHN RAFFERTY.  Rafferty has served as State Representative of Pennsylvania’s 44th district since 2003.  Then, protests over the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota by Native American groups and others continue.  Last week, over 100 demonstrators were arrested after clashes with police.   The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe says that the pipeline crosses sacred land and a spill could contaminate drinking water. We’ll get an update on the pipeline and the protests from NPR correspondent JEFF BRADY.
