Louise Slaughter

Congresswoman Louise Slaughter is in studio for a half hour to discuss a broad range of issues, including the Syrian refugee crisis and her position on the SAFE Act. 

In our second half hour, WXXI's Karen DeWitt joins us from Albany to talk about the fraud and extortion convictions of ex-Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and former Senate Leader Dean Skelos.

We sit down with Mark Assini, Gates town supervisor and the Republican candidate for Congress in the 25th district. Assini is hoping to defeat incumbent Louise Slaughter in November. We'll talk to him about his views on a wide range of issues, including the Affordable Care Act, the minimum wage, taxes, and foreign policy. It's part of our continuing effort to bring candidates for prominent offices to the show and allowing those listening live an opportunity to interact with them directly.
