Small-town Editors

Host Jacki Lyden speaks with editors of three small-town papers about what issues their readers care about this election season. Though some towns have historically had high voter turnout, the editors say this year voters are much more motivated by local issues than by the chance to choose a president. We hear from Tom Lawrence of the Whitefish Pilot, in Whitefish, Montana; J.D. Davidson of the Times-Journal in Fort Payne, Alabama and Ross Connelly of the Hardwick Gazette, in Hardwick, Vermont.
