This week in presidential campaign politics, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie promised to "tell it like it is" as he announced he's running for the Republican nomination. Democrat Hillary Clinton raised a record $45 million in the first three months of her campaign. And Republican Donald Trump stood by his claims that Mexicans crossing the border are rapists and criminals, even though NBC and Macy's are among the businesses that backed away from the celebrity candidate this week.
April Ryan, White House correspondent for American Urban Radio Networks, and Domenico Montanaro, NPR's lead editor for politics and digital audience, join Here & Now hosts Robin Young and Jeremy Hobson to talk about the week that was in the 2016 presidential race.
