Massachusetts U.S. Rep. Niki Tsongas finished a two-day tour with Republican Ohio Congressman Mike Turner today. The two have swapped districts once before, in 2014.

They visited Ohio Monday, touring Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and the General Electric Aviation EPIS-Center at the University of Dayton. Tuesday, the two toured Massachusetts, visiting Raytheon, Vibram and MIT.

Both are members of the Armed Services Committee, and joined us to talk about their district swap, and what they learned about military research and innovation.
