This Week in Missouri Politics – May 8, 2016

On Sunday’s episode of This Week in Missouri Politics, host Scott Faughn launches straight into the opinion maker panel featuring Jeff Mazur, the director of public partnerships at Launchcode; Joe Lakin of Victory Enterprises; former state Sen. Jason Crowell; and Rep. Bob Burns, D-St. Louis. They talk about the ascension of Donald Trump to the Republican nomination, what it means for the general election and the validity of delegates on both sides of the debate.

The conversation then shifts to the Missouri General Assembly, which is entering its final week before the interim. The panel discusses the override of Gov. Jay Nixon’s veto on the paycheck protection bill, photo voter ID bills, and Republican chances at statewide offices.

This Week in Missouri Politics airs Sunday mornings on KRCG in Mid-Missouri at 6:00 a.m. and KDNL in St. Louis at 11:00 a.m., and is available online Sunday afternoons at twmp.tv.
