Pete_home_photoFormer Republican representative Pete McCloskey is coming out of retirement to challenge "Pombo the Plunderer" in
California’s June primary. Could it be that Richard Pombo, a 6-term
Central Valley congressman is attempting to roll back every
environmental law that McCloskey championed back in the 70’s and 80’s,
including the Endangered Species Act?  McCloskey also talks about why
this race is a battle for the "soul of the Republican Party" (Pombo has
also been the recipient of $40,000 in donations from one Jack Abramoff). Listen (7 min)
