This week, the two democrats vying for the 7th District Congressional seat met for two debates. Boston City Councilor and challenger Ayanna Pressley has said the district needs a new activist voice. But, incumbent Congressman Mike Capuano defended his long record in the House and his 10 years of experience.

Plus, we discuss developments in the Trump Administration, including that President Trump's lawyers say the President wants to talk with special counsel Robert Mueller — even though they've advised him against it.
