Can anyone unseat Governor Cuomo to take over the reigns of New York State? Tonight you’ll meet the gubernatorial candidate, New York Senator John DeFrancisco, who says he’s up for the challenge. A startling report reveals that many older New Yorkers live in poverty and cannot afford to retire. We have the details as part of “Chasing the Dream: Poverty and Opportunity in America,” the multi-platform reporting initiative exploring the human stories of poverty. On the Jewish holiday of Purim, author John Heminway joins us to share the story of a former Nazi doctor in search of a new life in Africa in the wake of World War II. Heminway joins us to talk about his book “In Full Flight: A Story of Africa and Atonement,” revealing a journey through a life punctuated by both courage and weakness, driven by a need to atone.
