KD/PG Sunday Edition

CBS2-Pittsburgh-11:30 a.m.

This Sunday morning at 11:30 a.m., on KDKA-TV’s “KD/PG Sunday Edition” broadcast —  with KDKA-TV News Anchor Ken Rice and John Allison – Associate Editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

Pennsylvania’s Primary, this past week, brought Republican and Democratic frontrunners Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton closer to clinching their nominations. But, Campaign 2016 is far from over – to decide the Presidential nominees. Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz raised political eyebrows, by announcing his personal choice for a running-mate – former G.O.P. opponent and ex-Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina – even though the results from last Tuesday’s primaries resulted in Cruz being mathematically eliminated from any chance of winning the G.O.P. Presidential nomination, on the first ballot.

We’ll talk about the continuing surprises in Campaign 2016 – and the growing role that gender is playing, in the political rhetoric – with Dana Brown, Ph.D. – Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Center for Women & Politics, at Chatham University, where she also serves as an Assistant Professor of Political Science – and former Pennsylvania congresswoman and state senator — Republican Melissa Hart – an attorney and Strategic Communications Consultant with the Pittsburgh law firm – Keevican Weiss Bauerle and Hirsch LLC – who chairs their government affairs and government relations practice group.

Please join Ken Rice and John Allison, for this timely discussion – Sunday morning at 11:30 a.m. – right after CBS’ “Face the Nation” – for the “KD/PG Sunday Edition” – on KDKA-TV!
