Political Periscope
Rick SantorumIn the days leading up to this week’s primaries in Michigan and Arizona, GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney rubs in our noses again – and then again – that he is rich. And, a 50 year-old speech by JFK apparently makes Rick Santorum want to “throw up.” Plus, while the candidates have little to gain from Republican voters in the primary season by pivoting to softer rhetoric on immigration, the issue could become a game changer in the general election. On today’s show, we raise our political periscope for a look at the importance of the Latino vote and much more.

Guests:
  Michael Scherer, White House correspondent for TIME
  Garrett Quinn, author of the Less is More blog on Boston.com
  Charley Blandy, co-founder and co-editor of Blue Mass. Group
