Hosted by  • 

It’s primary day in California. Fifty years ago, primary day changed U.S. history. Robert F. Kennedy won the California primary for president. He was on his way to clinching the Democratic nomination. But that night, he was shot and killed at the Ambassador Hotel in LA. We talk with a biographer, and find out why RFK’s son believes there was a second gunman.
