Monday on The Chad Hasty Show, GOP strategist Matt Mackowiak joined the show to talk about current news in the 2016 run for the Presidency.

Mackowiak and Hasty discussed Ben Carson, Carley Fiorina, Donald Trump and others in the running for the Republican and Democratic nominations. With Ben Carson's numbers rising in the Iowa polls, the Republican landscape seems to be changing, and Mackowiak explained the possible reasons for it, saying,

 A large percentage of the Republican base is very frustrated with Washington, D.C., they're as frustrated with Republican leadership. They feel like having control of the House and Senate hasn't yielded any tangible results.

Mackowiak also talked about Hillary Clinton's email scandal which continues to smolder, as well as the Bernie Sanders & possible Joe Biden bids for the White House.
