The Rundown - Thurs 7/26/17: Trump and trans; Cory Gardner; Son of Sam

Thursday's guests:

7:06 AM Deputy Secretary of State of Colorado Suzanne Staiert joins us to explain her office's side in the lawsuit brought by NFIB against the Sec of State regarding the use of business filing fees to fund non-business-related activities of the office.

7:45 AM Senator Cory Gardner joins us for 5 minutes to talk about next steps in GOP efforts to reform health insurance and Medicaid. I'll also have to ask him about President Trump's announcement regarding transgender folks and the military.

8:06 AM Documentary film maker Tom Jennings: For more than a year, a serial killer known as “Son of Sam” terrorized New York City, killing six people and critically wounding seven others. On July 29, 1976, David Berkowitz began a murder spree that left law enforcement baffled and the public afraid to leave their homes, igniting a national media frenzy in the process. Using rarely seen press conferences, interviews and news footage, Smithsonian Channel's The Lost Tapes: Son of Sam recounts the search for one of the most notorious serial killers in history -- as if it were all unfolding in real time.
