Former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld is expected to officially launch his campaign for vice president today. He joins presidential candidate Gary Johnson, the former governor of New Mexico, and two hope to secure the Libertarian nomination next week.
We discuss their chances along with the indictment of a Walsh Administration official and the "Fair Share Amendment" that passed at the Constitutional Convention this week.
- "In his first interview since accepting an invitation to be the running mate of former Gov. Gary Johnson of New Mexico, Mr. Weld assailed Donald J. Trump over his call to round up and deport the 11 million immigrants in the country illegally. 'I can hear the glass crunching on Kristallnacht in the ghettos of Warsaw and Vienna when I hear that, honest,' Mr. Weld said Thursday."
- "Kenneth Brissette, the city’s director of tourism, sports and entertainment, was arrested and accused of withholding city permits to a business unless it hired union workers."
- "The Constitutional Convention advanced the 4 percent millionaires’ tax with a vote of 135-57 Wednesday. Now, it must be approved in the 2017-’18 session before going to voters."
