‘20 Questions: Citizenship and Beto O’Rourke

Skimm This - March 14, 2019 - 12:06

There are big questions coming up in 2020. Politicians are trying to get ahead of them. Today, Commerce Sec. Wilbur Ross took the mic on Capitol Hill. The issue on the table: the 2020 census, and whether it should include a question about citizenship. But there’s another questionnaire coming up in 2020. Hint: it’s your ballot. Former Congressman Beto O’Rourke added his name to it today. Also on today’s episode: Christina Koch makes history, and we celebrate Pi Day.
