The AFP on WREL: At rest

AFP editor Chris Graham talks Virginia news and sports with WREL-1450AM’s “Online with Jim Bresnahan.”

The segment begins with Chris and Jim talking about Gov. Bob McDonnell’s plans for raising money for Virginia’s rest areas by selling ads for display at the rest areas. Will that be enough to cover the budget gap in operating rest areas in the Commonwealth?

The attention then turns to the one-year anniversary of the signing of the federal health-care reform. Virginia’s GOP leadership has been at the forefront of efforts to block the law from taking effect. Chris discusses the politics in statements put out by people on both sides of the aisle in connection with the anniversary.

We wrap with a look at sports – and specifically the runs of Richmond and VCU into the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16.
