Despite setbacks, investor Chris Hansen tells host Joni Balter he has a "resolute commitment to stay the course" with his Sodo Arena proposal. But he wasn't alone. Surprise guest and Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson explained why he's teaming up with Hansen and shared a personal story about his love of the Sonics. Then a journalist panel weighs in on the Seattle mayor's race, including the front runners, and the one endorsement that could prove decisive in a crowded field. The panel also talks Trump and discusses the fallout from America's decision to withdraw from the Paris climate accord.
