The Wheelhouse: Trump Chastised, But Rift Within Democratic Party Remains

Connecticut's five U.S. Representatives stood with their Democratic colleagues and four Republicans Tuesday in rebuking President Donald Trump for his Twitter attacks against a group of minority congresswomen who have become known as "The Squad." Now what? Today we look at what the House resolution, approved on a 240-187 vote, means for an increasingly divided Democratic Party, Trump's base of support, the 2020 presidential election, and race relations in a country undergoing seismic demographic changes. Here in Connecticut, Gov. Ned Lamont this week found new allies--his counterparts in Massachusetts and Rhode Island--in his bid for highway tolls. He's also danglinga new dealbefore state lawmakers to draw them back to Hartford this year to vote on a toll plan. Will they bite? And it looks like more hot days are ahead for Hartford. A new study warns the city could see as many as 44 days a year of summer temperatures above 90 degrees by 2050. Support the show.

The Wheelhouse: Gov. Ned Lamont Remodeling His Office In More Ways Than One

Gov. Ned Lamont is in search of a new look at his State Capitol office, and we're not just talking about the new wallpaper and carpeting he wants to install.

This week, we gauge what this all means for Lamont's agenda, as well as his relations with the media and state lawmakers. Legislators have yet to budge on the governor's call for them to reconvene in special session to take up a highway toll plan. Is it time to come up with a Plan B for funding vital upgrades to the state's transportation system? Support the show.
