State of the Union
Feb 12, 2023

First, the U.S. military has shot down a third flying object in just over a week. Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Rep. Mike Turner joins to answer if these objects are a threat and what investments can be made to protect U.S. airspace.
Next, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer sits down with Jake to answer if she’s worried that polls show Democrats do not share her enthusiasm for a Biden 2024 presidential bid. Plus, now that Democrats have unified control of Michigan’s government for the first time in nearly four decades, she outlines her top priorities.
Then, as Democrats and the GOP spar over Medicare and Social Security, South Dakota Senator Mike Rounds answers if he agrees with Sen. Rick Scott’s plan to sunset government spending programs.
Finally, our panel debates how Republican contenders should challenge Trump in 2024 and whether President Biden can defeat them in a general election. Today’s panel includes Commentators Scott Jennings, Ashley Allison, Alyssa Farah Griffin and Paul Begala.
