Monday on The Chad Hasty Show, Republican strategist Matt Mackowiak spoke with Chad about current events in Washington.

Mackowiak talked about the House hearings questioning Hillary Clinton about Benghazi, and whether there was any damage done to her presidential bid.

Also discussed was the race for the White House in both the Republican and Democrat parties, with less than one hundred days left until the primaries. Mackowiak talked about Donald Trump's chance to receive the nod for the Republican nomination, as well as the possibility of Elizabeth Warren entering the race on the Democratic side.

About the GOP nomination and the chances that Trump will win the contest, Mackowiak said:

At the end of the day I remain pretty, pretty confident that the anti-Trump vote will consolidate behind someone, and that that vote is larger than the Trump vote. But this thing is pretty unpredictable, and as you said, you know, he's been the national polling leader for a very long time now, so he's been much more consistent and durable in terms of his polling strength than anyone thought he would be.

Mackowiak also provided his thoughts about Representative Paul Ryan and the contest to be the new Speaker of the House.
