Repost Episode 10: A Kind of Republican

April 25th, 2014

Episode 56 of 279 episodes

As we prepare for the relaunch of DecodeDC, we are continuing to repost some of our past episodes. This week we re-present our conversation with former congressmen Jim Kolbe, a Republican from Arizona who served in the House for decades. Similar to many of his Republican colleagues, Kolbe is a strong fiscal conservative. But what makes Kolbe such a fascinating political character is what makes him very different from many members of the GOP. He’s pro-choice, and he’s openly gay. Kolbe describes his outlook on the future of Congress — what should change, and what can’t change. On another note, stick with us as we prepare for the relaunch. Very soon we’ll have a multimedia blog, new logo and even more content!
