Story posted February 05, 2009

Assistant Professor of Government Mike Franz shared his insight into President Barack Obama's economic stimulus package and other current political matters on WCSH's February 5, 2009, noon newscast.

In a week that saw President Obama meeting with Republicans — including Senators Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins — to talk about the stimulus, Franz sat down to discuss how, even though they are in the minority, Maine's two U.S. senators have an important role to play in Washington.

Franz and Sandy Maisel, a professor of government at Colby College, also discussed President Obama's forthright style and his nomination of Republican New Hampshire Senator Judd Gregg to the position of Commerce Secretary.
