06/05/13 - Wednesday's Topical Currents is with lifelong moderate Republican attorney Barbara Olschner. After a 28-year legal career, she decided to run for a U.S. Congressional seat in the ultra-conservative Florida panhandle. She was swamped by tea party attacks, branded as an elitist, and finished dead last. In her book, THE RELUCTANT REPUBLICAN, she details the harrowing experience. That’s Topical Currents, Wednesday at 1pm on WLRN-HD1 rebroadcast at 7pm on WLRN-HD2 and audio on-demand after the live program.
