9 Takeaways From Day 1 of Barrett Confirmation Hearings

 
 
October 13 2020
 
Good morning from Washington, where Amy Coney Barrett will have her second day of hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Sens. Joni Ernst and Marsha Blackburn chat with Tommy Binion about the first day's hearing, while Fred Lucas has a comprehensive round-up of the big moments from that first day. What's next? GianCarlo Canaparo shares what questions he hopes Barrett is asked. Plus: A report of ballot theft in California; unfair treatment of churches; and a look at the Trump administration's international policies. Sixty years ago today, Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy squared off for their third debate. But there was no handshake between the two men: Nixon was in Los Angeles, Kennedy was in New York, and the debate moderator was in Chicago.
