Guests: Dick Polman, Matt Katz, Charlie Copeland, and Rob Gleason

Day two of the Republican National Convention is here: Donald Trump, Jr. and Ben Carson, among others, are due to speak, and today’s theme is “Make America Work Again.” In this hour of Radio Times, Marty will talk about the current state of the Republican Party and what the future may hold for the GOP. We’ll start by talking with DICK POLMAN, a national political columnist at NewsWorks.org, about the latest from the RNC in Cleveland. Then, we’ll be joined by MATT KATZ, a reporter for WNYC & New jersey Public Radio, to learn more about the presumptive Republican nominee, Donald Trump. And we’ll finish by talking with local GOP party leaders CHARLIE COPELAND, chairman of the Republican Party of Delaware, and ROB GLEASON, chairman of the Republican Party of Pennsylvania, about their hopes for the party and how the convention has been so far.
