July 22 - News At Noon

Jul 22, 2016

KSFR's Nancy Stapp brings you local news at noon. 

The Republican National Convention wrapped up last night in a flurry of speeches about the dark days of America. As one New York Times reporter summed it up:

“Mr. Trump sounded much like the unreflective man who had started it with an escalator ride in the lobby of Trump Tower: He conjured up chaos and promised overnight solutions.” We check in a final time with our Santa Fe Republican delegate Samuel LeDoux.

While the Republicans were gearing up for their final night, Senator Wendy Davis was in town encouraging New Mexicans to vote for Hillary Rodham Clinton. Davis became famous in July 2013 for famously filibustering for 13 hours to prevent a vote on a bill limiting women’s right to a safe abortion.

Pokemon Go is the latest mobile phone game to sweep the world after its release. KSFR correspondent Jeremy Zeilik talks to two players about the impact and popularity of the game.

Last night once again presented some bumps in the road for the Republican party and it’s nominee Donald Trump, particularly when Ted Cruz was booed off the stage after encouraging delegates to vote their conscience and not necessarily to vote for their nominee Donald Trump. As one politico blogger put it:Cruz’s defiance catapulted the ragged, plagiarism-marred, poorly managed convention into nuclear dumpster fire territory.

That was one opinion.

Last week KSFR reporter Mary Lou Cooper talked about what women want in a presidential candidate with Kelly Ditmar, a scholar at the nonpartisan Center for American Women and Politics.  This week Mary Lou caught up with Professor Ditmar who is observing gender politics at the Republican National Convention.

Bernie Sanders was unable to win his party's nomination, but he did force the political world to rethink fundraising. Reporter Ned Resnikoff told KSFR's Dave Marash on HERE AND THERE how Sanders' emphasis on grassroots fundraising challenged traditional methods.
