Congressional candidate Mark Assini joins us in studio.

The Gates town supervisor is the Republican challenging longtime incumbent Louise Slaughter. We have yet to be able to confirm a date with Rep. Slaughter.

With Assini, we talk about upstate jobs, health care, and the issues impacting the Rochester region.

Which presidential candidate do Republican Congressional candidates want at the top of the ticket? We find out when we sit down with Gates Town Supervisor Mark Assini, the Republican who is once again challenging longtime Democratic Congresswoman Louise Slaughter.

Earlier this winter, we sat down with Slaughter. Now we talk to Assini about how he intends to win a race that won't be nearly so under-the-radar this time around.

In this hour, we talk with Gates Town Supervisor Mark Assini. He'll talk about his surprise surge against Louise Slaughter, the status of the ballot counting, and what this means for his political future if he can't make up the difference.

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.
