The Republican primary field continues to grow, as this week, both South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced their candidacies for the White House. While the candidates compete for major endorsements, Tim Scott got off to an early start, picking up the support of fellow Senator John Thune. Senator Thune (R-SD) joins to discuss why he is backing Senator Scott for president, how he shapes up compared to former President Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, and the policies he believes Senator Scott can push if given the power of the Oval Office.
Today marks the 34th annual National Memorial Day Concert in Washington D.C. where more than half a million people will pack the West Lawn of the Capitol Building to view documentary footage, dramatic readings, and musical performances. The show is broadcast on PBS and viewed by U.S. troops in over 175 countries and on 200 Navy Ships worldwide. Actor, Joe Mantegna joins to discuss how he got involved with hosting the concert and why it is important to use his platform as an actor to tell the story of veterans.
