    Was this the show I heard part of where you were asking about Barbara C and how conservative she is? I think you know that she's been the Nevada chair of ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council), the organization that pushes state legislation agendas including stand-your-ground laws, right-to-work laws, voter ID laws, pro- NRA/pro-gun laws, anti-women's reproductive rights laws (re. birth control or choice), etc. Can't get much more right-wing.
