Ashford-Bacon-sidewalk-debate-081716Jerry Kratochvil talks with retired Brigadier General Don Bacon about the recent visit to Omaha by Speaker of the House of Representatives, Paul Ryan, and the subsequent sidewalk debate with Democrat Congressman Brad Ashford.

Bacon starts off by talking about the event with Speaker Ryan, when it was set up and about some of the security requirements they had with the Secret Service.

He then gets into the topics Speaker Ryan hit at the event itself and the issues he has discussed with the Speaker, and where he comes down for his legislative priorities.

Jerry and Don then get into some of the nitty-gritty of the campaign, what polling shows and where each of the candidates stand in terms of the 2nd District.

Don then gives some detail into the impromptu debate that he had with Ashford, after Brad crashed the party outside the event at Midtown. Bacon relays the shocking statement that Ashford made about Speaker Nancy Pelosi as well as Ashford’s being dumbfounded by Bacon’s question before hustling away.
