How Is The Left Shaping Up For 2016?

Jason Reed/Reuters, via Landov

  As Joe Biden decides not to run, Jim Webb pulls out and Hillary Moves into the hot seat, we'll discuss how the left is shaping up for the 2016 Presidential race. We’ll look at Republicans on the Hill too. Will Paul Ryan's own party keep him from becoming Speaker of the House?

Our guests are Max Hilaire, chair of the Political Science Department at Morgan State University; John Fritze, Washington correspondent for the Baltimore Sun; and Rebecca Sinderbrand, political editor for the Washington Post. 

At the top of the hour: this morning Governor Larry Hogan held a press conference at the West Baltimore MARC Station to announce a public transportation plan for Baltimore City. In June Governor Hogan decided to cancel Baltimore’s Red Line, a $2.9 billion light rail plan. Kenny Burns, WYPR’s City Reporter, was at the announcement this morning.
