Civic Cocktail: Senator Murray & Gary Locke
Civic Cocktail: Senator Murray & Gary Locke

Washington Sen. Patty Murray doesn't hold back while discussing the latest capers of the Trump White House. She tells host Joni Balter what she really thinks about EPA Chief Scott Pruitt and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. Since Murray took office in 1992, the number of women in the U.S. Senate has quadrupled. She says as a group they often cross party lines to find solutions. On the question of impeachment, Murray had a two-word answer. Also, a man who's worn many political hats shares his thoughts on the U.S. census controversy and international trade. Former governor, U.S. Commerce Secretary and U.S. Ambassador to China Gary Locke gives his take on the census citizenship question and why tariffs are hurting many of our closest allies. And, remember the viral photo of Locke and family carrying their own luggage in China? He shares a few humorous anecdotes about that experience as well.
