Election 2012 on KCRW: Primaries
In 2008, Barack Obama rode a wave of "hope" and "change" to the presidency. Four years later, after the worst recession since the Great Depression and with Congress as divided as ever, Republicans are making their best case for taking back the White House.
Can Mitt Romney unify the conservative base? Can President Obama rally candidate Obama's supporters to fend off the GOP challenge? How are the super-rich Super PACs changing the game? Whichever side wins, can the country find a new direction in the next four years?
KCRW's election page will help you find the answers and let you ask important questions of your own. We'll follow all the big developments while going beneath the rhetoric and the horse-race to talk about the issues that matter.
