Today on Your Call: Who are the Republicans?

POLI02rep-elephant-3.jpg

 

On today's Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the Republican Party.  With the 2012 election cycle ramping up, we’re asking some fundamental questions: Who is the base of the Republican Party?  Who’s leading it?  Who’s paying the bills?  How has the party changed over the years and what are its principles and goals?  Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org.  What is your opinion of the Republican Party?  And what do you want to know about it?  It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.

 

Guests

Michael Tomasky, correspondent for Newsweek/The Daily Beast and editor of Democracy: A Journal of Ideas

Karen Ford, long-time member of the Republican party and member of Occupy Monterey

Bill Whalen,research fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University
