Political Checklist: A Sequestration Campaign

BY Christina Bellantoni  August 3, 2012 at 8:35 AM EDT


In this week’s Political Checklist, I chatted with senior correspondent Margaret Warner about the politics of defense cuts as the campaigns and both parties on Capitol Hill are sparring over automatic slashes set for next year.

Sequestration is the newest political buzzword, and it’s unlikely there is any compromise ahead.

Margaret noted it’s difficult to measure how many jobs are actually at stake in the defense industry.

Tune in to the NewsHour Friday night to watch Margaret’s report.
