We are building bridges of communication between the many groups that make up the St​. L​ouis Metropolitan Region by sharing and reflecting on the stories and lives of a diverse group of guests.

Good to be back in the kdhx studio talking national politics with Tangazo commentators from around the country. -----

President Joe Biden, former President Donald Trump, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and California Governor, Gavin Newson and how the 2024 presidential election will play out, was the focus of a vigorous discussion last evening. ------

Our panel included former Tallahassee Florida Mayor Dorothy Inman-Johnson, former Story County Iowa, Supervisor Wayne Clinton and Democratic operative, Attorney Ludlow B. Creary II of Long Beach California. ------

Local Republican Paul Berry III, joined me in studio for a very interesting conversation on various topics, surrounding the upcoming presidential election. ------

How will recent USSC rulings impact the turnout in 2024, should Iowa continue to be the first primary, are should a more diverse state host the all important first primary election, given its importance to the outcome. ------

One of the most interesting topics was, the idea that African American voters concerns, have to take a back seat to Pro Choice and LGBTQ matters. ------

The panel lamented the lack of focus, on core “black issues”such as poor schools, police abuse, crime and poverty. 
This was a great discussion that you will enjoy hearing. ------
