NOW Today: Not your typical Thursday


This morning NOW gets its second guest host ever - Luke Russert.

We’re excited to have him in the chair and we’ve got the usual packed show.  We’ll talk about Illinois of course, but we’re also going to talk - wait for it - a little 2016.  March Madness brackets are due at noon, so we can’t resist tying that into the political discussion.  Rod Blagojevich said goodbye last night - we’ll talk to another disgraced politician, Fmr. Ohio Rep. Bob Ney.  And we’ll talk about all the conservative Super PAC money sitting on the sideline - because we ain’t seen nothin’ yet.  See you at noon ET.
