As this year’s presidential election field takes shape, political pundits still believe Mississippi will be a red state in November. However, the dynamics of this year’s election make it difficult to say for sure and lead some to think that Hillary Clinton may have a chance to carry the Magnolia State or to at least make inroads. Daily Journal Capitol Bureau Chief Bobby Harrison (12:18) joins Derek and Brad to discuss the dynamics of a Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton election and what he has learned in his discussions with political pundits.
Also on today’s show, Bobby (17:50) and local government reporter Caleb Bedillion (21:16) talk about the state bond bill that is pending before Gov. Phil Bryant. On one hand, state Treasurer Lynn Fitch has criticized some of the projects for having a narrow impact, but local mayors say the money their towns would receive would have statewide benefits.
Plus, Brad (31:06) breaks down the craziest crime reports from last week.
