KDKA Anchor Stacy Smith and Political Editor Jon Delano talk about Vice Presidential Candidate Paul Ryan’s acceptance speech and more from the 2012 Republican National Convention.
Republican efforts to promote hatred across racial and religious lines are heating up this electoral season. They have found a new warrior to promote the cause in Arizona, Gabriela Saucedo Mercer. Mercer has questioned whether Middle Easterners should be in the US “either legally or illegally”.
