Weekly Roundup: The House Expels Santos, and A Clash of Two Governors
Play • 24 min
Rep. George Santos became the sixth person ever expelled from the House of Representatives Friday. And while Santos has been a political thorn in Republicans' side since his election, not everyone was comfortable kicking him out.

Plus, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis debated California Gov. Gavin Newsom in a debate on Fox News this week. It was a glimpse of the Democratic and Republican visions for the future in a post-Biden and Trump world.

This episode: White House correspondent Tamara Keith, political correspondent Susan Davis, congressional reporter Eric McDaniel, and senior political editor and correspondent Domenico Montanaro.
