This week, several key primaries take place, including U.S. House Speaker John Boehner’s primary race in Ohio.
Boehner has also made headlines recently after scheduling a vote to create a select committee to investigate the Benghazi attack. However, many Democrats see this as a dramatic move that is sure to rev up the GOP base ahead of the midterm elections.
NPR’s Senior Washington Editor Ron Elving discusses these and more stories from the week in politics with Here & Now's Robin Young.
