NBC Political Director Says Rural/Urban Divide “Stark”

NBC political director and chief White House correspondent, Chuck Todd, declared the “Rural-Urban political divide is as stark as it has ever been.” Speaking to a Washington, D.C. news radio station Monday, Todd said today’s divided nation is no longer “red state verses blue state, it’s rural verses urban.” He added that many of the politically divisive issues such as gun control and abortion stem from rural and urban differences that are “cultural.” Chuck Todd has been invited to speak during the National Rural Health Association’s 24th annual Rural Health Policy Institute next month. Join other Coloradans in DC to continue the discussions about rural health and meet with Colorado’s elected officials. Click here for more details on the Policy Institute.
