On The Hill, Episode 17: A chat with Virginia Congressman Don Beyer

Apr 22, 01:03 PM

Virginia 8th District Congressman Don Beyer joins the On The Hill podcast. He’s been a well-known car dealer, lieutenant governor of Virginia, a U.S. Ambassador and now a Congressman. Beyer talks about what first-time candidates often get wrong, equating success in the business world with being a good elected official. And we also look at how the Mueller report may be robbing the media spotlight from an issue critical to Democrats recent success: healthcare. Beyer also has a blunt take on the current state of Virginia politics with the top three elected officials facing calls to resign (some from Beyer himself) and yet no one seems to be moving forward past recent controversies facing the governor, lieutenant governor and the attorney general.
