Congressman Thaddeus McCotter (R-MI) being a late entry in the presidential race was excluded from the debate last night.  He did make it down to the spin room where I was able to ask him a couple of questions about Iran, job growth and education.  You can watch below:

I also participated in a phone conversation with the Congressman this morning and was able to ask him about Afghanistan, complaints that some have about social issues being brought up when they say the economy should be the focus, and spending cuts. You can listen here.
