At Issue: Feb. 2 — Last push before Iowa caucuses and assessing Klobuchar’s momentum
This week on At Issue, Matt Belanger hosts while Tom Hauser is in Iowa for the final push before the state’s caucuses. We discuss how the Democratic candidates and President Trump are campaigning. Seven thousand people packed a rally for the President in Des Moines on Thursday. We discuss what he had to say to his supporters.
We also talk about how Sen. Amy Klobuchar has been able to split her time in Washington and Iowa. Our analysts weigh in on Klobuchar’s momentum going into the caucuses and what it means for the future of her campaign.
Plus, we break down the new battle brewing at the Minnesota State Capitol over insulin costs. We hear from families struggling to pay for the life-saving medication. We then analyze the differences between what Republicans and DFLers want in a new bill and whether they will be able to come to a compromise during the 2020 Legislative Session.
