Biden vs. Farmer: An On-Target Perspective

Joe Biden has been busy in Iowa, trying to gain support in his quest for the Presidency.

Will He be the Next President of the United States?

Beto O’Rourke says he’s in.  He joins a growing field of Democratic contenders for the big prize.  Can he make it all the way to the White House his first time around?   On-Target’s Larry Sparano  and Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York discuss O’Rourke’s strengths and weaknesses as he aims high -very high:
