Dick Durbin of Illinois and Republican Gov. John Kasich of Ohio faced off on NBC's Meet the Press over the recession-wracked Midwest, which has suffered a high rate of manufacturing job losses." Roll Call noted Kasich's preview of the 2012 election in Ohio: “'It’s going to be close,” Kasich said today on NBC’s 'Meet the Press.' 'It’s going to be tight as a tick out here. It always is.'" Bloomberg's Business Week and The Examiner also covered the debate on MTP.
David also moderated a roundtable discussion on faith and politics. The Baltimore Sun wrote, "Baltimore Archbishop-designate William Lori said that the U.S. is witnessing "an erosion of religious liberty... Lori, appearing as part of an Easter-morning round-table discussion on NBC's ‘Meet the Press,’ said he would not characterize the current atmosphere as a ‘war’ on religion.” Reverend Billy Graham's daughter Ann Graham Lotz joined, speaking about her view on faith and elections. "”I would not vote for a man who was an atheist because I believe you need to have an acknowledgement or a reverence or a fear for almighty God,’ Anne Graham Lotz said on NBC's ‘Meet the Press’" Politico reported. National Journal covered Rep. Raul Labrador’s (R-ID) advice for Mitt Romney as a fellow Mormon: “’He should talk about who he is and what formed him,’ Labrador said on NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday."
