Hour 1

CHRIS COONS is Delaware’s newest Democratic U.S. Senator, defeating Republican candidate Christine O’Donnell in November and taking office immediately. He joins Marty in studio to discuss some of his early votes, including repealing the military’s Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy, to the budget battle now underway, to the change in political culture from New Castle County to the U.S. Senate.
