Ahead of the presidential primary in New Hampshire on Tuesday, Mike Barnicle’s latest column for The Daily Beast takes a look at the Republican governors on the ballot—Ohio Governor John Kasich, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush—and how their office may help them respond better to voter concerns. "None of the senators running have to make decisions about getting a curb cut for a company relocating in their state. In Washington, the plague of drug abuse, the reality of death by overdose, the cheapness and availability of fentanyl and heroin is an abstract talking point. A governor is on the line every day, all day." Read Mike’s first-hand accounts from Nashua, New Hampshire here.

Continuing the conversation on the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, Morning Joe's Mike Barnicle provides a likely answer as to why it took government officials, including Governor Rick Snyder and the Environmental Protection Agency, so long to address the lead-poisoning issue. "It's an age old answer—and it's called 'demographics.' [The people of Flint] have no political clout... they don't know politicians... they live on the edge... and if they're working they live paycheck to paycheck," explains Mike. Watch the ongoing discussion of the mishandling of the disaster in Flint here. On MSNBC.

On the heels of a virtual tie in Iowa between Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Mike Barnicle and the Morning Joe crew discuss Senator Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) influence on the Democratic race for the White House and Clinton’s persistent flaws as a candidate. “Hillary Clinton is a very strong candidate, there’s no doubt about that, but she does have a couple of weaknesses that she seems unable to deal with: the lack of attraction to younger voters and the fact that Bernie Sanders has captured a message for the disaffected Democrats. And that’s not going to go away,” says Mike of Clinton’s campaign struggles. Watch the discussion here on Hillary Clinton and the “what ifs” surrounding Senator Warren’s decision not to run in 2016. On MSNBC.

In his latest column for The Daily Beast, Mike Barnicle profiles a pocket of diversity in Des Moines, Iowa, leading up to today’s caucuses there. “For weeks now and nearly every day as people finally begin to vote, the one common thread that has united Republicans has been the fear that immigrants are destroying the country, standing in the way of America’s own children from landing lucrative positions like cleaning offices, emptying hospital bed pans, toweling off a Lexus at the car wash, mowing lawns and picking up lunch trays at Panera Bread,” writes Mike. Read Mike’s column on one Catholic community in Iowa that, despite the latest political rhetoric, continues to shine a beacon of hope for the American immigrant experience here.
