  The field of presidential candidates keeps growing.

In today’s Congressional Corner, Connecticut Representative Elizabeth Esty gives WAMC’s Alan Chartock a hint about her choice.

This segment was recorded before Rep. Esty endorsed Hillary Clinton over the weekend.

It's the end of an era in Albany.  WAMC's Tristan O'Neill reports...

"I will not be accepting that nomination."

After 40 years in government and 20 years in the New York State Assembly, Jack McEneny has declined the Democratic Party's endorsement for another term...

"I think after 20 years, it's time.  There must be something magical about the number.  Congressman McNulty made it 20 years and Senator Nolan hit 20 years. Now I have my 20 years.  I think it's time to pass the torch."
