Your Call: Where is the Grand Old Party heading?

Jul 18, 2016

On the July 18th edition of  Your Call, we will discuss the state of the Republican Party. The rise of the Tea Party, and the ascendancy of Donald Trump has led to what many describe as the end of the Republican Party.

With the center of power shifting more to the right, where is the Grand Old Party heading? And what are the roots of the chaos in the Republican Party? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you. 

Guests:

Heather Cox Richardson, professor of history at Boston College, and author of "To Make Men Free: A History of the Republican Party"
