The Rundown - 3/13/18: PA 18; DougCo Mental Health Initiative; Albus Brooks

At 7:06 AM, we'll talk with Douglas County Commissioner Lora Thomas about DougCo's Mental Health Initiative. I want to make sure people in DougCo know what's available to them...and people outside DougCo get some ideas of things to suggest to their local governments, especially those things which simultaneously help residents while also reducing costs to taxpayers.

At 8:06 AM, we'll be joined by Albus Brooks, president of the Denver City Council, for our monthly conversation. We'll talk about a moratorium on some kinds of construction, about Mayor Hancock's current situation, about the most recent "sanctuary city" controversy, and more.

At 6:48 we'll talk with Trump confidante and Contributing Editor to the American Spectator, Jeff Lord, about the special election in Pennsylvania's 18th Congressional district, not too far from Jeff's long-time home. 

Some interesting info on the race here:

I think the judge obviously got this one right: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/12/us/lottery-winner-privacy.html

What's happened to the GOP? A new poll shows that Republicans support Trump's tariffs (mostly on the strength of white voters without a college education) but that their support drops if the tariffs would hurt American jobs (which they must.)

And if that's not enough: For the first time since before WWII, the federal budget deficit is growing as a percentage of GDP during a peacetime economic expansion. 

Putting these two things together (and I'm sure there are other examples), one has to wonder just what the GOP stands for in 2018.
