Police Union Endorsement; Political Trackers; Increasing Tree Canopy

The Cleveland Police Union says it will make an endorsement in the presidential race, but some of the rank and file is less than happy about it. And a new court order could mean more than a million new voters in Ohio by November. We discuss with our journalist roundtable.

Have you heard of "political trackers"? Trackers are folks who follow opposing candidates wherever they go, and record them with video cameras. If candidates say embarrassing, hypocritical, or offensive things, audio or video could very well wind up in the next attack ad. Reporter Nick Castele joins us with more.

Plus, we dig into the issue of ‘tree equity’. We'll take you to one Cleveland neighborhood to find out what it is and why you should care.
