What to look for on Smart Talk Monday, May 14, 2018:

Robert Costa, the moderator of Washington Week on PBS and national political reporter for the Washington Post joins us on Monday's Smart Talk to discuss a host of issues.

Tuesday is primary election day in Pennsylvania when Republicans and Democrats will be nominating candidates for governor, the U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives, Pennsylvania House of Representatives and half the State Senate.  Even the primaries for the mid-term elections are getting national attention because control of Congress and the Trump Administration's agenda are at stake.  Most Republican candidates in the region are running in full support of President Trump while Democrats are energized to oppose him.

President Trump is scheduled to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un next month.  The president is seeking the denuclearization of North Korea.  What Kim wants is only speculation at this point.

These are just two of the issues we'll discuss with Costa on Monday's program.

Also, the Mifflin House in Hellam Township, York County was (and may be still) in danger of being demolished.  A coalition of historic preservationists have campaigned to save the structure that is said to have been on stop on the Underground Railroad that helped escaped slaves on their way to freedom.

What may ultimately save the Mifflin House is a mini-casino that Penn National Gaming will bring to the area.

Historian Randolph Harris is on Monday's Smart Talk to explain.
