Jerry Kratochvil sits down in Omaha with actor Clint Howard.
Howard talks about his love of baseball and immediate love for the College World Series in Omaha. As a guest of State Senator Jim Smith of Papillion, Howard is in town cheering on the underdogs and enjoying Nebraska.
Howard originally met Senator Smith through the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), and he talks about the importance of conservatives in local and state government. He also talks a little about his involvement with other conservatives in Hollywood.
Through the group “Friends of Abe“, Howard joined other conservatives in Hollywood, such as Gary Sinise, Jon Voight and Kelsey Grammer, who work in the entertainment industry and would like to be able to speak their mind. He shares a little bit about what the (somewhat secretive) group talks about when then meet, their goals, and how they got started back in the day when conservatives were publicly hammered on sets around town.
Jerry and Clint finish up talking about Clint’s love of baseball, and Jerry reminds him of his Omaha baseball connection, from way back in the days of “Gentle Ben“.
