Connections: Should conservatives spend more time in cities?

In a piece for the National Review, writer Kevin Williamson says conservatives do not do well in America’s cities, and they themselves are to blame for some of that. He says conservatives should spend more time in urban areas -- rather than hunkering down in traditionally conservative regions -- in order to be heard by liberals.

We talk to local conservatives about what they think and how they can improve their numbers in cities. In studio:

  • Don Riley, vice president of Mark IV Enterprises and former supervisor for the Town of Greece
  • Tom Hebert, federal affairs associate for Americans for Tax Reform
  • Ayesha Kreutz, local activist and founder of the Frederick Douglass Foundation of New York
