Episode #229: All In The Family

Sunday was Mother’s Day, and so we picked this week to spread some family love by playing some of our favorite segments from past broadcasts.

We hear from two proud daughters. Shelley Moore Capito, the junior senator from West Virginia, reminisces about her late father, former Governor Arch Moore.  And Sheila Simon, the former lieutenant governor of Illinois, shares great memories of her late father, former Senator and 1988 presidential candidate Paul Simon.

Clifton Truman Daniel, the grandson of Harry Truman, has fun stories about the nation’s 33rd president.

What happens when a husband and wife each run for political office … against each other??  Jennifer Johnson (D) and Dave Johnson (R) talk about their experience in seeking a local office in Maine.

And what’s Mother’s Day without celebrating our nation’s mothers?  We speak to Yvonne Burke, a former California House member who in 1973 became the first member of Congress to give birth while in office.
