We’ve just had a round of primary elections around the country that may give a clue to where voters will land in November. The results of those ballots are just one thing that will be on the minds of our congressmen and women – and President Obama - as they return to Washington after their summer breaks. Add terrible jobs numbers, an economy that just won’t move into high gear, immigration issues, and stalled climate change legislation to that general and pervasive angst over upcoming mid-term elections… iieee! It’s a brew strong enough to bring grown men to their knees. Politico’s senior editor, David Mark sits down with Patt to parse out the politics with a view from inside the Beltway.

Guest:

David Mark, Senior Editor for Politico and author of Going Dirty: The Art of Negative Campaigning
