Obama’s historic trip to Cuba, Boehner backs Ryan for president


President Obama visits Cuba next week for the first time since the U.S. restored diplomatic relations with the island nation. Obama will be the first president to visit Cuba since Calvin Coolidge in 1928. The New York Times’ Peter Baker says this is one of the last big bucket list items for Obama. Plus, former House Speaker John Boehner waded into the 2016 race for president by throwing his support behind his successor Paul Ryan if the GOP nomination is decided in a contested convention. And the Supreme Court is set to hear arguments in a case about Obamacare’s contraception mandate. NBC’s Pete Williams explains how it might not be a 4-4 split.
