WAMU 88.5 : The Diane Rehm Show

Hurricane Sandy And The 2012 Presidential Election

President Obama is expected in New Jersey today to meet with Governor Chris Christie and view the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy. New Jersey and New York were hit particularly hard by the storm. Along the East Coast, at least 50 people lost their lives. And millions are still without power. The economic cost has been estimated at between $30 billion and $50 billion.

Diane and her guests discuss the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and how the natural disaster might affect the 2012 election.
