New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will make it official on Tuesday, as he gives a speech at Livingston High School. But right after he makes that speech, he’ll be jetting out to New Hampshire, where he’s hoping he’ll be able to pull off an early upset to jumpstart his longshot odds. Christie has three days of events planned in the Granite State. Aaron discusses the case Christie will make to Republican voters for their support.

For Richard Matt, the end came on Friday, when he was gun downed while holding a shotgun. For his fellow escapee David Sweat, his at large status ended on Sunday afternoon, after he was spotted about 30 miles northwest of the prison, and was shot and wounded before he had a chance to disappear back into the woods. Sweat is now in critical condition in an Albany hospital. His capture concludes a three week manhunt since the two escaped an upstate New York prison using stolen power tools and hacksaw blades.

6/29/15 Podcast Steve Roberts

Leading Republican lawmakers were not all ecstatic regarding the Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage on Friday. Many expressed disappointment in the decision, but at the same time expressed sentiments that there was little to gain my trying to reverse things legislatively. Steve discusses whether the issue should be used to rally the base, or on the other hand, to widen the umbrella. Also, in the next couple of weeks, we’ve got more governors in the 2016 race. Jindal last week, and Christie, Walker, and Kasich to join the party shortly. Steve looks at their respective chances.

It could have been a disaster week, but last week saw all the legislative cards turning up aces for the White House…. He got his trade authority thru Congress, and the Supreme Court handed him victories on both his healthcare program, and on the same-sex marriage front, the latter resulting in celebrations around the country over the weekend. More battles lie ahead, including the ongoing Iranian nuke talks, which are nearing yet another deadline for progress. But right now President Obama appears to be firing on all cylinders.
