NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — There seems to be no more divided, gridlocked city in this country than Washington, D.C., our nation’s capital. Nashville’s representative to that city in the U.S. House of Representatives is Jim Cooper. With Congress on recess until after Labor Day, the Congressman is back in town full time. He is very gracious to spend time with us on INSIDE POLITICS as he does a couple of times each year. We always appreciate his willingness to be on this program to discuss the many issues of the day.
NOTE: Our conversation with the Congressman occurred earlier this week before the Metro elections. Therefore, we did not discuss his brother’s candidacy for mayor. I conducted a second interview with him on that topic which we aired in our election coverage Thursday night. I hope you saw it. I discussed it in some detail earlier in this column.
