In our news wrap Monday, a new round of storms pounded West Virginia, where more than 20 counties braced for additional flooding. Since last week, floods have killed nearly two dozen people across the state. Also, a California wildfire consumed 250 homes and other buildings, stoked by record-breaking heat and ongoing drought.
In the past the deceased have won elections, but in West Virgina a convicted felon trailed President Obama in the state’s Democratic primary. Keith Judd, who is serving a 17 and a half year prison sentence, took 41 percent of West Virginia’s democratic primary votes, but couldn’t beat Obama’s 59 percent. Ann Larson, activist for Occupy Student Debt Campaign, joins us for more on Obama.
