Kagro in the Morning - February 3, 2016

David Waldman sends get well wishes to Joan McCarter, and looks forward to her visit next Wednesday!  

House Republicans celebrated Groundhog Day reliving their failure of repealing Obamacare. National Security Editor Dr. Sebastian Gorka was arrested trying to board a flight at Reagan National Airport with a 9mm handgun. Gorka learned nothing from WorldNetDaily Joseph F.

Greg Dworkin joins us all in congratulating the bearer of the longest held erection known to science. So, what got Iowans most excited this week? Greg leads us through the polls and the pundits.
