KHOI reporters gathered audio from last weekend's Family Leadership Summit in Ames, an event put on by Bob Vander Plaats' social conservative group, the Family Leader. On today's show, hosts Kay Puttock and Greta Anderson shared some highlights from the event, and solicited responses, first from Story County GOP chairman, Brett Barker of Nevada, then from assistant professor David Anderson of Iowa State University's Political Science department. Is Donald Trump's threat to run as a third-party candidate real? Will opposition to gay marriage have the same kind of power for Republican candidates as the anti-abortion issue has? Find out what our guests think on these and other issues.
