Will he or won't he? New Jersey Governor Chris Christie flirts with a run for President. We'll hear how he was received by Southern California Republicans at the Reagan Library last night. Christie may be on the sidelines but Anita Thigpen Perry is stumping hard for her husband, presidential hopeful Rick Perry. Evan Smith from the Texas Tribune tells us more about the Texas native who's taking on a high profile role in the campaign. Also, the ACLU says violent beatings are routine at L.A. County jails. We'll get the details. And why one education analyst says we need to do a better job of matching college bound seniors with prospective schools.
