Washington Week | Presidential Hopefuls in New Hampshire, Sen. Menendez Corruption Investigation


Several potential Republican presidential candidates travelled to New Hampshire this week. Jeff Zeleny of CNN explains the impact of campaigning in early primary states for these hopefuls. The Washington Post’s Carol Leonnig breaks down the corruption investigation of New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez and what is, or isn’t, allowed when people in power want to “help a friend.” As Leonnig says, the prosecution has a “tough case.” Plus, The New York Times’ Peter Baker comments on the president’s emotional speech in Selma, Alabama and his late-night entertainment appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
