He also discussed the latest news from the Tucson City Council and the Arizona Legislature.

30 minutes in, we were joined by Democratic U.S. Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (CD1), who was in town to visit local leaders. Subjects covered included veterans issues, immigration, the federal budget and gun control.
