Today's Junkie Segment On TOTN: The Tea Party Comes To Town

Congress is back from its spring recess and, guess what, more fights are on the horizon.  Republicans have made it clear they oppose the Obama administration’s push for financial regulatory reform, and some wonder how contentious the effort to fill a Supreme Court vacancy will become.

Those are just some of the juicy topics in today’s Political Junkie segment on NPR’s Talk of the Nation.  Plus: The Tea Party hits Boston on its way to Washington … there’s a winner in yesterday’s special congressional contest in south Florida … new polls to report … and a powerful labor leader is leaving his post.

Last week's segment – speculating about the next Supreme Court justice – can be heard here.

Join host Neal Conan and me every Wednesday at 2 p.m. ET for the Junkie segment on TOTN, where you can often, but not always, find interesting conversation, useless trivia questions and sparkling jokes. And you can win a Political Junkie T-shirt!   

If your local NPR station doesn't carry TOTN, you can always hear the program on the Web or on HD Radio. And if you are a subscriber to XM/Sirius radio, you can find the show there as well (siriusly).
