Democratic Gains; Donald Rumsfeld; Airport

Audio

Aired 4/19/09

This week, the Democrats gained control of both houses of congress. What will that mean to the war in Iraq, immigration reform, and national healthcare?

Also, Donald Rumsfeld resigned from his post as Secretary of Defense following the election. How will his successor, Robert Gates, change the U.S. policy in Iraq?

The airport ballot measure, Proposition A, failed by a sizeable margin in Tuesday’s election. Does that effectively end the debate over building a new airport in Miramar? And will the passage of City Propositions B and C give Mayor Jerry Sanders the tools he needs to reform city hall?
